As the article says, it has come to light that in versions 6 – 11 of Internet Explorer, there is a flaw that means that in certain circumstances, it may be easier for hackers to gain control of your PC. In light of this news, we’d like to suggest to MNers using IE that they consider switching to a different, more secure browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
I use Chrome but for the last few days MN hasn't worked on it. It crashes, won't load pages fully (so most of the screen is white), or just hangs. I resorted to IE but I hate it. Perhaps this is something affecting others or that could be looked at?
