significantly lowering risk and still enjoy the
feature rich functionality that IE offers.
Man, are you all there mentally? Do you even know what web standards are?
The only "features" missing are ActiveX compatibility (even that can be
solved with a plug-in, but I wouldn't recommend it). Do you know how
many sites I have to load in IE that I can't view in Firefox or
Mozilla? (media rich sites, no less) None. Sure, there's the
occasional site with a broken media plugin link (I'll happily point out
that most of these sites don't work on a percentage of IE-based systems
either, as they're coded poorly because brain-dead slobs think poor
coding and IE-only compatability means "feature rich") but there's
always a better site to go to that isn't riddled with spyware or crappy
code. Not letting people view those sites is doing them a favor.
Over-permissiveness is not a virtue or we'd all be marrying prostitutes.
You have to be joking. Either that or you read that off the back of a
pamphlet for a web development training company.
