Homeland Security steers consumers away from IE

This article on Yahoo! News is sure to cause quite a bit of controversy.

The Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team touched off a storm this week when it recommended for security reasons using browsers other than Microsoft Corp.’s Internet Explorer.

I’ve been using Firefox for almost a month now. I only go back to IE for the few pages that require it, such as the MSDN subscriber downloads site, whose treeview is unsupported by Firefox.
