Serious security flaw found in Microsoft INTERNET EXPLORER

Users of Microsoft's Internet Explorer are being urged by experts to switch to a rival until a serious security flaw has been fixed.
Windows Vista has already failed to fulfil its user's expectations. Though Windows as an operating system is most favorite of vast majority of computer users but its problems are also uncountable.
Its Explorer is the main source of Internet crime. It is the paradise of hackers. Microsoft has not been able to fix the explorer problems more quickly. Lets see how the expert feels on this present situation:

Richard Cox, chief information officer of anti-spam body The Spamhaus Project and an expert on privacy and cyber security, echoed Trend Micro's warning.

"It won't be long before someone reverse engineers this exploit for more fraudulent purposes. Trend Mico's advice [of switching to an alternative web browser] is very sensible," he said. (courtesy BBC)

We already had Firefox to get the best alternative of Explorer. But now Google has lanched its browser "Chrome" which is far better than FireFox and has no comparision with Internet Explorer. 

Its beta version for windows Vista and XP SP2 is available free to download.

Google's Jessica Powell explains Chrome's new features.
