Internet Explorer has had a bit of a reputation problem over the years and some people prefer to disable it on their systems. But if you have disabled it, should you continue to install security updates for it regardless? Today’s SuperUser Q&A post has the answers to a curious reader’s question.

Matter of personal choice. I use Chrome, everybody I know likes Firefox, our school teachers prefer IE (all of them, for some reason).

There are many business applications that only work with IE. They were built in-house by a business for their own needs. For many reasons, they have not yet updated them to work with other browsers.
Things like the latest IE vulnerability are motivating the business leaders to spend some time and money to update their in-house applications.

I'm convinced, more and more, that Windows was designed by a troop of mentally deficient monkeys.

I have tried Chrome three times during these last 8 months and have had problems every time. I'll stick to IE. don
