Of all the browsers out there, IE is the most vulnerable due to a variety of causes. the high market share is one, but it also lacks certain protections found in other browsers.
It is for this reason that I do not use it at all. I use Chrome, with Firefox for the occasional website that doesn't want to cooperate.
So I have to ask, why do all of Aeria Games' links (from Ignite and from the individual updater/launchers) all force an IE connection?
It's not because I have IE set to default, I even have it set to not allow access (ostensibly). but Aeria seems to have found a way around that...
This may seem a small issue, but nothing is small when it comes to security.
