    Hi! Now you can check how secure are the most popular web browsers with this Opera widget:

    http://widgets.opera.com/widget/4495
    (Click green "download" button to get it)

    The five bars represent how secure is Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Konqueror. The higher a bar, the worse security holes has the browser. If four lights in a bar are turned on, you should watch out while browsing. If five lights are turned on, better change a browser for a while ;-)

    You can hover mouse cursor over a browser icon to see how many security holes the browser has. Or click it, to go to Secunia.com site and read more information about the security of the browser.

    The data for this widget are loading from www.secunia.com site for about 8 seconds, so be patient. I hope you will like this little gadget :)

    Hello,
    I see Opera is coming Firefox-way, a lot of customized little thingies - aka extensions / widgets. Very good move.
    Mrk
