IE 8 More Secure
Microsoft has long known it had a security problem with Internet Explorer, and
it has struggled mightily to fix it. The company now argues that IE 8, now in
beta, will be far
than any of its predecessors.
Chief among the protections are a way to stop cross-site scripting exploits,
and safer surfing of social networking Web sites. There are also ways to keep
hackers from jumping from an individual PC to the entire network.
What can Microsoft do to make IE safer? Should it remain a part of the OS and
thus near-impossible to remove? Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
