Microsoft has unveiled a new version of its Internet Explorer (IE) web browser that has improved security features. This was seen as a bid to counter the growing threat from the Firefox browser. The new version of the IE browser has also further increased the rivalry between Google and Microsoft.
In January 2005, Secunia, a Denmark-based computer security company which tracks vulnerabilities in over 9000 software products, had given the IE 6 their highest rating of "extremely critical" because of the high number of flaws detected in the browser.
