    Funny really, bad guys can't trust other bad guys lol.

    But interesting that some of them take precautions. Not all hackers/coders/malware writers are stupid, in fact quite a number of them are VERY bright.

    Or another Gecko based browser, SeaMonkey or K-Meleon, Proxomitron out front, running in a sandbox or virtual OS. If they're really concerned about their internet security, they're probably not running Windows.
