IE7 phish filter in action

by Devin Ganger

Earlier this year, we at 3Sharp performed competitive testing of the Microsoft Phishing Filter in IE7 against several other offerings. Today, we released a report on our findings, entitled Gone Phishing: Evaluating Anti-Phishing Tools for Windows.

My background is in both Windows and UNIX systems administration, and I can remember working for a website company back in the days of the original Browser Wars. Having to support IE2, IE3, two or three versions of Netscape, plus Lynx on our developer workstations -- ah, those were the days. As a result, I've tended to avoid IE when I could. I'd embraced Firefox early on -- back in the 0.4 timeframe -- and used it religiously. On my work blog, I've talked about how working on this testing helped change my mind and why.
