Other browsers may have problems, and often do (In the case of Firefox say) but the time to respond is key here. MS 
have a real problem going that extra mile when it comes to patching against variants of a vulnerability (ADODB.stream, 
shell: etc).

Mosl software has vulnerabilities at some stage, it's how you deal with it.

Subject:  [Full-disclosure] IE is just as safe as FireFox

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.
