just out of curiousity, do you use internet exploder for browsing ?

Hell no.

First, it has a good number of higher-level design flaws that make it
fairly vulnerablt to various privilege escalation / zone bypass attacks.
Second, it is far too popular, making it practical to write malware that
targets it; it is rather pointless to "phish" using a lynx address
obfuscation vulnerability ;-)

Third, I generally do not use Windows.
