Internet Explorer - Endless Security Problems

"In researching the latest IE security disaster, I am across this article. Date: just over a year ago. Subject: Major flaw revealed in Internet Explorer; users urged to switch. Microsoft response: "cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw". Well exactly how many flaws does it take? How serious do those flaws need to be?

"Now fast forward to today. The headline is the same. Again. The only thing that has changed is Microsoft's response - instead of "it's only one flaw", they say "it's only in one very old version of IE" - which is a sly way of implying that it is the users own fault. Never mind that independent experts have said that it exists in IE 7 and IE 8."
