Modern browsers are much more carefully designed to be secure (for example, with the multi-process architecture of chrome).

So far as I can recall, Internet Explorer has always had a reputation for security vulnerabilities. It also does not support modern Web standards - another reason why the web is moving on, leaving IE behind.
Needless to say, I don't use Internet Explorer. When I'm on Windows, it's mostly Chrome at the moment.

That is though mainly because they have not bothered to actually bring it up to date. They want everyone to get Windows 10 and use Edge.
On the other hand a lot of the things in IE have been clunky for some time, so most people I know use Firefox, Water-fox or Chrome most of the time.

Subject: [nvda] Microsoft's Own Security Chief Says: STOP using Internet Explorer
Article that came out today in The Telegraph newspaper in the UK:
Stop using Internet Explorer, warns Microsoft's own security chief ( https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2019/02/08/stop-using-internet-explorer-warns-microsofts-security-chief/ )
If that doesn't convince people that the shelf life of IE is now expired, nothing will.
