Firefox has only 10% market share and has had so many security updates lately ;)

I would recommend Opera any day.

Could you elaborate? My impression is Opera software is the fastest to handle any known security issue among the browser vendors.

Yes, because market share dictates the quality of code. You're absolutely right.

I find comfort in the fact that they are taking the time to patch the product, instead of leaving security holes wide open.

I'll stick with my current version of Firefox, I'm tired of updating every month or so. I use Firefox for testing purpose only anyway, so...

Yes, I find the 5 minutes a month completely exhausting....even more so than my 8 hour a day job.

I won't comment on your logic, but please use the term install base when that is what you mean.
