MSN Slate Magazine: "Firefox trumps Internet Explorer"

Monday July 5th, 2004

Several readers wrote in to tell us that the MSN Slate Magazine ran an article recommending Mozilla Firefox over Internet Explorer last week. Author Paul Boutin mainly prefers Firefox for security reasons, with the browser's lack of support for ActiveX eliminating many virus and spyware concerns. While Slate is owned by Microsoft, it should be noted that the publication has always maintained that it is editorially independent and that Boutin is a freelance journalist.

I am recommending whole-heartedly to my friend who works in the air-force. I emailed him that article saying that the government recommends using an alternative browswer than IE. I never cared to do any of this promoting stuff until I found out going to a rather plain jane website can cause you to get virus in oh.... 3 seconds. Now I'm going to convince my friend, my sister, and my brother to switch to Firefox. Like asap. :)
