So, your still wrong no matter how you flip it, turn it, stare at it, or post it...
But I didn't suggest Relying solely on google chrome, so I think you need your eyes tested, as I clearly stated MSE in there
There is just no need for all of that added protection, its bloat ware, if you don't have common sense, then yea, that's your problem, id rather not have tons of annoying security programs (spybot).

Granted I did omit about your mention of MSE, which is a very solid program..

3 programs is hardly tons, furthermore Spybot usually only works in the instance of malware & spyware trying to do bad things, it's not 100% DEP...

UAC on the other hand is pretty much 2nd to none though, as it runs in Kernel & has the most privileges & can 100% lock/freeze a computer process dead in it's tracks...

Comodo will require resources, so yes, I can see validity to your statement...

Some people just cannot deal with the popups, it gets old fast...

Sacrificing security for doing away with ultra protection like UAC is a common mistake I see clients make...

In fact I did a survey (personally) and found that when you turn UAC off (At the clients request naturally), clients get infected FAST!!

Nevertheless, say what you will, and so will I, let the reader decide...

IE 9 has nothing on google chrome in security, if I'm correct it has a built in sandbox.
IE has had sandbox since IE7. You need UAC turned on for it to work, it's enabled by default. IIRC it's called "protected mode" or "protected browsing" in the Internet Options.

Chrome has severe compatibility issues compared to any other browser, and frequently does not work properly with popular websites. ATM Chrome fails with Facebook and GameSurge.net, 2 sites I just got off the top of my head. BTW Chrome is the only browser I have installed on all my computers. I ditched IE (my fav) years ago to try Safari for 6 months, then FireFox, and now Chrome. I'll go to IE9 when it comes out since I'm done with Chrome and all it's crashes and incompatibilities. My entire University intranet doesn't work with Chrome, and almost all webpages say "Use IE or FireFox with this site". Chrome is the only browser that can't upload files either.

IMO the reason Chrome is secure is because it doesn't really do anything other than display simple text and images on some websites lol..

And FireFox has been the most insecure browser for 2007, 2008, and 2009. Stats for 2010 still have not been finalized. FireFox has more severe venerabilities than all the other internet browsers combined.

What the hell?!?!?!
I'm happily using the IE9 beta on my Vista machine, why can't I use the RC (and logically the final release) on it??

This was my last throw of the dice with Microsoft in the browser wars, they are totally out now.

That's a little cliche. It sounds like you're basically saying that if a user isn't being blocked from a pop-up something is going to happen. That honestly just sounds like the lack of common sense.

Either way, common sense, AVG/MSE, and a scan of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware have kept me virus free for 4+ years. I'm sorry to say, but bragging of your 'experience' just looks childish. Yes. The irony.

I gotta say, IE9 RC is a pretty good browser.. last time I really used IE was when firefox first came out though
post #27 of 32
For the most part I have found it to be about 1 1/2 times faster than FF, but that fact is worthless if I can't have all my add-ons. it is going to be a long time before I can ever jump to a new browser.

AVG = The Worst scanner on the market, why would you recommend that?

Who said anything about pop-ups?

I referred to the UAC Lock Screen with the Command Prompt Box, not a Pop-Up which is Internet browser related, another subject entirely, but I thought that was common sense, meh...

You are trolling, plain and simple, my statements can be backed up your statements only lend to the validity that you are trolling...

Personally I went back to MFF too, ie9 is too new for people to make that switch, it's not 100% bug free either, and it smells like a rip from Opera or Google Chrome, nice try M$, I'll pass...
