And don't forget the other favorite trick by Microsoft funded "independent" studies: carefully study the compared objects history, then choose the timeframe where the one you want to favor looks best. This is how they could maintain with a straight face that Windows is more secure than Red Hat in the "Get the FUD" ads, for instance.

Firefox probably isn't the best browser out there, but it surely is more secure than IE if you look at *all* facts.
