All you're showing is that you don't know what you are talking about. I have a Mozilla-based browser running on Public computers here at work that I've run for a year-and-a-half of constant use. In all that time, I've never had a security problem with this browser. In contrast, thanks to IE's numerous security holes and integration into the OS, I have had constant problems with IE. Yes, we keep IE and Windows patched with the latest updates, we use Windows policies and third-party software to keep things locked down but IE is still a source of troubles. That's called real-world experience and IE is a security headache. Care to share your experiences with Mozilla and IE since you seem to be passing yourself off as an expert?
