Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

It would be relatively easy to own an Amiga 500 which you were using for browsing...
Most of the AmigaOS browsers, and even things like the tcp stack are rather dated, no longer maintained and wouldn't take too long for a skilled attacker to find some holes. Actually exploiting such holes would be relatively easy too.
The only advantage of using an Amiga is that people wouldn't be expecting it, if anyone remotely skilled was actually targeting you it wouldn't help much.
