The very first thing I ask all my folks in Iran to do, is to delete internet explorer short-cuts (it is hard to un-install completely as being part of the OS).
I used to ask them to install firefox and keep it updated; after this incident and the clear advantage of built-in certificate pinning I changed my suggestion to use Chrome instead.
I am sure however, that the ratio of users using Linux over Xp/7 is the same as everywhere else, so maybe it is time to tell everyone about Linux :)

So, instead of recommending the leading open source Web browser, you're recommending a proprietary one issued by the company that recently bought DoubleClick for US $3.1B?

Chromium, then. It has pinned certificates too.
