Mainstream Rags Reccomend Ditching IE due to Security Issues

How about this for a choice: Get a better browser AND make yourself safer.

Mainstream sites like Slate and others are reccomending a move to Firefox off of IE. The conversation starts on security, but ends up at better functionality. Security and risk are slowly becoming an integral part of the technology aquisition process.

A CERT advisory last week makes a similar reccomendation, but how many users pay attention to CERT?
