Microsoft's security and mangement product manager (Ben English) says...

 At a security roundtable discussion in Sydney on Thursday, Ben English,
Microsoft's security and management product manager, told attendees that
IE undergoes "rigorous code reviews" and is no less secure than any
other browser.

"Because IE is ubiquitous, you hear a lot more about it, but I don't
think that Internet Explorer is any less secure than any other browser
out there," English said.

Can anyone say IFRAME? Lol

Yes, IE security needs work. Yes, Firefox is a great web browser.

However, if Firefox or any other browser had the same market share as
IE, would it really be that much more secure? There sure would be a
lot more people trying to find holes in Firefox if it had the same
user base.
