Smooth one Microsoft. Really reeaaallly smooooooth. As far as I know, every news source out there (including MSN) has articles about how insecure IE is. The US Government (US CERT) has issued warnings about it for pete’s sake (poor pete).

Come on, Microsoft, I’ve had plenty of doubts and dislikes about you, but I thought you were better than this.
