    Germany panics, again.

    First we had them panicking when they heard there was a bug in IE, and recommended the entire country drop IE as their browser.

    Now someone has mentioned to them that Firefox has a bug (and it's not the first of course), so once again Germany makes a panic reaction and says drop Firefox as your browser.

    Perhaps if someone told them all browsers have security problems (which of course is true), they'd ban people from using the internet.
    Let's just hope they don't read that last sentence...

    I am in Germany and haven't heard the news.

    Yes, I am sure I'll be banned from the internet soon enough since we're oh so very behind the times.

    So if Internet Explorer and Firefox aren't on Germany's recommendation list, I'm guessing the next one to be shot down (when an issue occurs) will be Chrome?
