Internet Explorer 7 was designed with security in mind. While there have been several flaws reported in the browser, Microsoft has so far been very good with patching them. When they discovered that Internet Explorer 7's phishing shield can get bogged down very quickly when viewing multiple web pages at once (or just a web page with a lot of content), Microsoft worked hard to find a fix. The problem lied in the way the phishing filter checks for bad sites. Instead of checking whether a site is on a pre-downloaded "naughty list" like Firefox 2, Internet Explorer 7 asks Microsoft whether or not a site is good before loading it. A quick optimization patch was not included in the most recent "Patch Tuesday", but you can still get it here.

Anyone depending on MS for security is naive and foolish, IMO. Do you really think MS has the time and resources to provide security when they can't even deliver Bug free code? I mean come on people, MS uses it's customers as Beta testers and depends on other companies to expose the countless security holes in virtually every product MS sells. Do you really think being at the end of the security food chain is gonna provide good security for your PC?

Hardly.

... If you hate MS so much, then use something else. This is not communist China, nobody is forcing you to use their products. As for Beta testing, what better way to find problems than letting a million people test your product?
