    It seems a bit lame to judge a browser's security based solely on phishing expeditions.

    Having said that, I've maintained that any browser configured and used properly, will provide a safe computing experience. Choice of browser, then, can be made according to personal preferences.

    I had to smile upon seeing this advertisement:

    Did it link to a Firefox download? :D :p :D

    As for Browser Wars, Im not overly concerned over browser security or performance. I use Firefox because I like the themes and extensions.

    I was most surprised by the fact that a user of Opera-user would praise IE for it's securityo_O (He must have it in for Firefox) lol

    Hello,
    After just reading the title I had a diarrhetic spasm.
    If you want security go with IE - it's like if you want VD, go with Prostitute 2007.
