DHS says do NOT use Internet Explorer

This DHS announcement illustrates the tremendous costs of a computing monoculture.

The Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team touched off a storm this week when it recommended for security reasons using browsers other than Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer. Mozilla and Opera are two excellent browsers. Mac users can choose from those as well as Apple's excellent Safari browser. There's also Netscape.

Business Week's Stephen Wildstrom also says that IE is too risky.
