The primary purpose of this blog is to advise readers of significant updates to our Wisdom Tidbits website (temporarily mothballed, not available), as well as any important new postings on our other three related blogs, FluBits, DumBits, and AutBits.

Now, "fetch me my axe...".

Tech Advice: Ditch the Internet Explorer browser

There is a quote below from a recent article regarding several countries advising to "ditch IE". There is a link to the article below the quote.

We personally advise doing same, as good ole IE not only tends to be terribly insecure but is horrendously slow compared to other browsers in many respects. We personally recommend using the Firefox and Chrome browsers. If you are not aware, Chrome has a new beta version which now has hundreds of extensions like Firefox, some of which are better, but still does not have the entire overall functionality of Firefox. We include at the bottom of this post a link to a prior post that we did on the new Chrome functionality...

"In light of the recent attacks on Google China and Microsoft's revelation that an Internet Explorer security flaw served as an impetus in the assault, Germany's Federal Office for Information Security has released a warning to its population: avoid IE."
