Ah, sorry, I'd missed that connection. I see what you mean, not that IE is inherently more at risk, but that this tool to flag potential problems isn't available for it. It seems strange that Netcraft release this tool, but exclude a large number of users who could probably do with it!

Hi :)

"Netcraft's updated browser extension is available as a free download for
Firefox 1.0 and later; Chrome 26 and later on Windows, OS X, and Linux; and
for Opera 15 and later on OS X and Windows. Versions for other browsers
aren't available, unfortunately, which means users of Internet Explorer and
Safari are left in the dark."

Regards from
Tom :)

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.:
   That article is a year old now, so other browsers may have improved
since (and if not, it would seem there's now a good reason to do so!)
