    Web surfers eyeing Mozilla-based browsers as a safer alternative might want to wait a week before making the switch.

    That's because the Mozilla Foundation, an open-source browser development group in Mountain View, Calif., has acknowledged a pair of serious flaws in the way its browsers handle certificates, the digital documents that let you verify a Web site's identity.

    Mozilla said its engineers were caught off-guard by the vulnerabilities, as the code in question dates back from the open-source browser's proprietary progenitor, Netscape.

    Heh. Now Mozilla/Firefox will have yet another advantage over IE.

    Very good news! I'll be looking foward to the new version of Firefox, but i wonder if there will be compatability problems with SpywareBlaster again?
