    I don't know why MS don't make information like this "more known", so that the public are atleast aware without having to read a blog. For example, that's the first time I've heard of that IE9 improvement. It wasn't mentioned in the IE9 blog or website.

    Because most people don't know what DEP/ASLR even are. Everyone has been conditioned to believe that security = AV software. Give me DEP/ASLR along with OS level access controls any day over AV software.
