    Moved here. (other security issues is the place old Microsoft Updates get moved to and where most discussions of patches occur.)

    Of course IE is usable. It's a nono for me, though.
    The real problems are not yet tackled: ActiveX, JavaVM en BHO. These are design issues. These functions are part of the MS vision of the internet world.
    Besides, IE is such a big application, and it's integrated in the OS, there will probably always be critical vulnerabilities. Worse, every vulnerability in IE is a vulnerability in the OS.

    As Meneer said, IE is usable, but using it as a primary browser is probably not a great idea... IE has a huge number of vulnerabilites, and MS hasn't made patches for several of them.

    yes, IE is still usable and improved with SP2 rc2 but a number of vulnerabilities still exists.... it is still better to use other browser which doesnt use activex, etc... like firefox or mozilla
