According to secunia.com:

IE 6.x has had 80 advisories, of which 42% (34 advisories) were rated
highly or extremely critical, and 3 critical advisories are still
unpatched after several months.

Firefox 1.x has had 16 advisories, of which 19% (3 advisories) were rated
highly or extremely critical, and only 1 critical advisory is still
unpatched, but it's only been in that state for a few days, and a patch is
on its way.

Soon, we will once again have no unpatched critical vulnerabilities with
Firefox, and we will still have three or more with IE.

I still like my odds with Firefox.
