The German government has recommended internet users to find an alternative browser (such as FireFox) and use it instead of Internet Explorer to protect security.
The warning from the Federal Office for Information Security comes after Microsoft admitted IE was the weak link in recent attacks on Google's systems. Curiously enough, Google's corporate network was hacked because its workers were using IE to browse the internet – and not the company's browser, Chrome.
StatCounter Global Stats show that FireFox is already the most popular browser in Germany, with about 60% market share. IE is way behind with 27% and still dropping.
