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.

... because as soon as you hit 50% marketshare, the quality of the code
which has been written and distributed instantaneously and magically
drops and order of magnitude ...


It's a simple concept. The more people use something, the more flaws
are exposed.

Especially if there ARE more flaws, lol. IE is doomed because of its
integration with Microsoft software and its feature set.
