In what way does Heartbleed affect IE users any more than others? Heartbleed is a bug in server-side software, and affects anyone using affected sites regardless of their browser. In fact, from what I've seen, it appears that newer versions of Internet Explorer are amongst the best at handling certificate revocation (which is needed to prevent a compromised certificate from being used to impersonate the server - just installing a new certificate on the server prevent the old one being used up to its expiry date if it's already compromised). e.g.:
