I don't think Mussels replied to the act of banking as such, but rather the point of putting trust in what's generally perceived the most insecure browser ;)

what jack said.


i disagreed with his logic, not his choice of browser. IE9 seems decent, but overall IE is the risky browser since its got all the tieins with windows. its certainly harder to infect nowadays (especially with UAC on), but if a virus does make it in, well... its easier to integrate with windows and IE simultaneously (and a juicier target), than the lesser used browsers.


personally when i want things done secure, i have a portable version of chrome called Iron that i unrar, do my deeds (copy pasting all usernames from various documents and using an on screen keyboard for passwords) and then delete the browser folder when done.

One reason why i switch to Firefox... But all browser's have flaws
You switched to Firefox for security?:laugh:

Statistic time!

Microsoft IE8 Vulnerabilities found: 78
Mozilla Firefox 3.6.X Vulnerabilities found: 96

And IE8 has been out since March 2009, Firefox 3.6 has only been out since Jan 2010.

i think you would be hard pressed to find any evidence that makes that statement true. a virus unknowingly downloaded using a browser has no discretion. just because you use a different browser does not mean any of your form data is more safe using one browser over another. that kind of stuff boils down to the OS level.

personally when i want things done secure, i have a portable version of chrome called Iron that i unrar, do my deeds (copy pasting all usernames from various documents and using an on screen keyboard for passwords) and then delete the browser folder when done.
that wont stop you from getting a virus though. it will only slow down how the virus is spread. also, if a virus does exist in the folder you delete then you are not deleting the virus. the virus will stay on whatever media you have until you nuke it.

my statement is more based on the old days of IE. my opinion of the newer ones is that they are much more secure than they used to be.

I'm loving the new IE, very easy transition. I'm having other issues though, my Zuma blitz is lagging on facebook :( I've only just got this HD 5870 though so I may have stuff setup wrong. I'm used to Nvidia.

I changed my mind when it asked me to close all current running apps... maybe some other time.
I just told it to ignore and continue. It just asks you to reboot when you are done installing it(I was already expecting that anyway).

My bank itself also uses IE all over the building, not those hippy hippy heehoo browsers.
And never forget security is more of a human behavior issue ;)

Ive become too acustomed to Firefox's interface. I'll probably wait for a while to see where this new tech goes.

Sorry if I'm off here, but 'Protected Mode' (UAC, Vista+) and for example 'Phishing Filter' has been available in IE7 since '06. IE8 has been touted as "the worlds most secure browser" much thanks to the improved Phishing Filter (SmartScreen) and IE9 isn't exactly any less secure for its end-users.

The "IE is risky" or "generally known as the least secure browser" opinions seem, to me, very dated and belong in the "Vista blows" trashcan.

I use FF 3.6 at work, FF4 at home and IE9 as a back-up browser on both locations. I haven't used portable versions very much, but I'll check your Chrome "Iron" version out!

Do you know a way of moving Favorites to left side of window?

Use Favorites all the time and have found it to be too annoying to keep going to the extreme right side of window to open a link and then immidiatly have to move to the extreme left for the menus of the opened link... :p

Preferred position of Favorites etc. is as in IE8, but haven't found a way to get this setup in IE9...?

Yeah. Right click the top bar and turn on "menu bar". I had the same issue.

No, that still leaves the Favorites to the right.

These three icons should be moved to same line as tabs and should be the first "tab"... otherwise I keep moving mouse from full right to full left... very annoying! :D




Think I'll go back to IE8, but Nine is very fast!

no wasn't the only reason. and i never used IE8 i stop using IE right before 7 was release... which prob doesn't make a difference. Like i said before every browser has it's flaws. It's like anti-virus program.. Some programs will detect things that others can't. But yea IE might be better now, but i hardly do banking now anyways. So to me, it's just gotta work and look good

Dude when you add the menu bar it brings an option of "favorites".
Sorry for being persistently thick, but do you mean like this:



----
Otherwise I simply can't find a way to move the three icons and the above is just horrible cumbersome to work with... :rolleyes:

Don't understand why Microsoft didn't make it customable like in IE8.
