Here’s why you should not use IE

Cy­ber xpert says In­ter­net Ex­plorer a com­pat­i­bil­ity so­lu­tion

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - SCITECH - —bgr.in

Chris Jack­son, a cy­ber­se­cu­rity ex­pert in Mi­crosoft’s Win­dows divi­sion, ex­plained in a blog post that why peo­ple to­day should not use Mi­crosoft’s In­ter­net Ex­plorer. He says that the browser should not be used as your pri­mary Web browser as it is a ‘com­pat­i­bil­ity so­lu­tion’ for en­ter­prise cus­tomers to deal with legacy web­sites.

“In­ter­net Ex­plorer is a com­pat­i­bil­ity so­lu­tion,” warns Jack­son, rather than a Web browser that busi­nesses should be lever­ag­ing on a daily ba­sis for all the reg­u­lar brows­ing ac­tiv­ity. “We’re not sup­port­ing new web stan­dards for it and, while many sites work fine, de­vel­op­ers by and large just aren’t test­ing for In­ter­net Ex­plorer th­ese days. They’re test­ing on mod­ern browsers.”

Be­sides, the com­pany un­veiled
