What is the strongest of the intermolecular forces

http://wine1.sb.fsu.edu/chm1045/notes/Forces/intermol/Forces02.htm

The strongest is electrostatic forces between ions.

But I don't call electrostatic forces between ions "intermolecular forces." They are ionic or electrostatic attractions between ions and not between molecules.
