Apple A bug in Apple's Safari leaves it vulnerable to crashing from an animated image. All webkit apps are vulnerable, even rss readers. This comes after Internet Explorer and Firefox had vulnerabilities due to pictures. Why is it that images cause browsers so many problems?

...and then you have to worry about the bug getting caught in all of the applications (if it exists) and then updating when and if the vendor releases one. With shared libaries, update once, and all your apps are updated as well.
