For once, I'm wishing more sites were like PayPal
I'm not a fan of PayPal, with its poor customer service (which is a huge deal when it comes to handling money), but I'm with them on this:
Web payment firm Paypal has said it will block "unsafe browsers" from using its service as part of wider anti-phishing efforts....
...Paypal said it was "an alarming fact that there is a significant set of users who use very old and vulnerable browsers such as Internet Explorer 4"....
...Paypal said some users were still using Internet Explorer 3 , released more than 10 years ago.
IE3?? Holy cow! I don't even think that's loaded on my old IBM Intellistation that's collecting dust in the corner.
Here's a surprise to me:
Paypal said it supported the use of Extended Validation SSL Certificates....
...The latest version of Internet Explorer support EV SSL certificates, while Firefox 2 supports it with an add-on but Apple's Safari browser for Mac and PCs does not.
