>>97. Various security related features Surely you knew Mozilla had better security features?

>>This is a COMPLETELY ridiculous comment... nobody bothers finding exploits for software that only a TINY proportion of ppl use. EVERYTHING has security flaws. And M$ (for all their problems) at least releases bug and security fixes almost IMMEDIATELY that they are identified - Moz is a LOT slower in repairing these kind of problems.

That's funny. The security issue I reported to Mozilla (bug 147754) was fixed in 3 and a half hours. That sounds like "IMMEDIATELY" to me.

Anyway, where in the text "Various security related features. Surely you knew Mozilla had better security features?" did I say I was refering to security bugs?

> and note how many people that guy distributed it to

I mentioned it on my Weblog and responded to a newsgroup posting with it. I didn't send it to anybody else. Things on the Internet distrubute themselves.
