Location: In a state of confusion
IE9 is far past the security issues of the old IE5, 6, and 7. Improvement started around IE7 many of the problems with rendering, compatability had been fixed or eliminated. Far better security has been implemented in IE8, 9 & 10.
Personally I have found that Firefox is too busy with add ons that confuse or don't give a proper explanation of their function - and some counter-act each other. I do think its good for web developers with their implementation of tools but not my cup of tea.
Chrome is becoming my favorite. I haven't been using it that long but I find it easier to learn than Firefox and IE. The speed is faster than the others and it renders pages with seemingly better or crisper resolution and faster. The only thing that bothers me about Chrome is there's no decent toolbar yet. hopefully in time.
I also think these browsers have just as many security issues as the next. I actually get more viruses or malware incidents with Firefox then I have with the other two.
However, the bottom line is to this day a lot of countries are still using older versions of Windows and browsers. So if you want your site to reach the largest audience then you must at least make sure that your sites are usable (compatible) and functionable with older versions of Windows and IE. This may mean giving up some of those fancy flash visuals that many of the big companies use on their sites which in my opinion create a lot of issues with usability and navigation - and thats even with Windows 7.
I wish we were better strangers....
I'll always cherish the original misconception I had of you.
