Microsoft will release a new version of Internet Explorer prior to the launch of Longhorn, the upcoming veresion of its operating system, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates said in his opening keynote at RSA Conference in San Francisco.
The company had previously said a new browser version would only be launched as part of the Longhorn launch in 2006.
The absence of any kind of security – or at least any kind of security that stops spammers, malware and viruses from spreading – in Internet Explorer 6 has caused many users to switch to Firefox, giving the open source browser a huge boost. Last month 21 percent of the visitors to HPShopping.com, HP's online store, used Firefox, HP's Linux president Martin Fink told delegates at LinuxWorld in Boston this morning.
