IE8 – Safer, faster, and more secure (HUH?)

Today I had the need to go to MSDN and look up some information. I have not directly gone to MSDN for a while. when I opened up the site I got this banner bar across the top

It offered me the advise that I should use IE8 instead of my current browser (Firefox). The reason is that IE is Faster, Safer, and easier. I was amazed, I did not know IE8 was safer.

Then when I went to the root of MSDN I got this advertisement (POP over)

I find it hard to believe that IE is better than firefox, but I guess Microsoft thinks so.

— Update —
I just got another site with a different advertisement for ie8. This time I was using chrome.
