PayPal Plans to Ban Unsafe Browsers


“Barrett only mentioned old, out-of-support versions of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer among this group of “unsafe browsers,” but it’s clear his warning extends to Apple’s Safari browser, which offers no anti-phishing protection and does not support the use of EV SSL certificates.”

Seems to me that you would have to include current versions of IE too. I mean come on. I would not use IE that was currently patched and bloated with AV software to do anything I wanted to keep secure.

    Comeon Jeff, Nobody uses IE anymore…. not after Firefox became available! Be real!

    Well people like you and me will not use IE… but what about those non-computer savvy family members? you know who I mean. The family member you do not want to help. The one that debates weather of not they should sign up fol AOL. We all have one 🙂

    So this will be a good thing for those people. When they realize that they can not buy something on ebay with their Paypal account on their Windows 98 PC. Everyone wins.

    Well, I still have a Pentium 166, it runs Debian and Firefox, but it is so slow that I doubt that I’ve booted it in the last 18 months (it used to be a Win 98 box). Will Win 98 even run anymore? on Anything?
