Privacy, Security, Encryption "Is Browser Security getting better? That is tough to say but Firefox is definitely not leading the way. Despite all the hype, despite all the Myths, Firefox 1.x has a worse security record so far in 2006 than Internet Explorer 6.x."

Guys, take a look at this thing. This article defines browser security as the number of vulnerabilities as reported by Secunia in 2006. Operationalising browser security this way, IE is more secure than Firefox.

What is so difficult about that? You can disagree with the way this article operationalises browser security (in fact, operationalisation is the a common attack vector when critisizing scientific articles), but you can NOT say the guy has his facts wrong. Becuase they are CORRECT.

Like I said, I won't start using IE. But this article uses FACTS to come to its conclusion. Whether you like it or not.
