Browser wars - more marketing bullshit

Remember my earlier post about marketing-speak? The Orwellian BS that advertisers spew at us nonstop. Well, I've just seen a new one that bears mention.

It's a commercial for Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8, wherein they claim that their browser "stops 3 million scams each day." Well, that may be true - but if so, then so do all the other browsers out there: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, you name it. So what's the big deal? I have absolutely no idea!
