IE is not a browser, so stop using it as your default

Quote:
Is Internet Explorer (IE) a browser? According to Microsoft, no. Today, it's a 'compatibility solution' for enterprise customers to deal with legacy sites that should be updated for modern browsers.

Chris Jackson, Microsoft's worldwide lead for cybersecurity, really doesn't want enterprise customers to use IE for all web traffic, even though for some organizations that would be the easiest option. .

I use it as a secondary to Firefox. It has Flash add-on, which is rarely needed today.

I use ActiveX filtering. It helps for broken web sites that eat RAM and crash Firefox, and blocks auto-play videos too.
