First off, this is 100% PR bullshit. The guy has never run Firefox,
Opera, or anything other than IE. So he might as well say "According to
this piece of paper the PR people gave me, IE is as secure as any other
Browser". 


Or he read and was citing <perhaps without reference?> Michal Zalewski's
<lcamtuf () ghettot org> recent paper and release of browser testing tools
that many developers are now employing in the A&D?  Zalewski's recent
seems to support the hypothosis.  This does not  undermine the idea that
M$ in making explorer keyed into the OS at such core levels that it
weakens the whole structure of the OS itself though <all to own and retain

The most any of us can do is sign on as it's accomplice.  Instead
of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet.
That would mean that security is out of the question.  The words
"make" and "stay" become inappropriate.  My love for you has no
strings attached.  I love you for free...
