While there may not be a 100% safe browser, there are browsers that are much safer than the MSHTML or Mozilla Gecko-based ones.

No js, css, or rpc features. It does display images, but it uses the standard image handling libraries (libjpeg, etc.), which are pretty mature. Fewer LOC means less chance for unknown vulnerabilities.

Hey, you aksed.

I should also note that Gecko is a rendering engine, and therefore has nothing to do with this URL-parsing vulnerability.
