Google Chrome at the top of the dirty 12 app list. (check out Firefox too)

I have had several issues with IE freezing up and really screwing up our work computers. We finally removed them completely and have been using Firefox ever since. We haven't had any issues so far.

Interesting. I wonder how many of these vulnerabilities were actually used by hackers. Since Chrome has a much lower browser market share, the hackers may not be focusing on writing malicious code for it like they would IE.

I hate that hog IE. If it weren't for the one MLS that still requires it's use to function I would have dumped that crap ages ago. I use Chrome for everything else and adore it.
