i was reading an article in pc world about the myth that IE is less secure than other browsers. they showed numbers from 2009 where symantec received reports of 169 for firefox, 94 for safari, 45 for IE and 41 for chrome. but who cares about symantec. using us-cert aka united states computer emergency readiness team, which is charged with hosting a database of reported computer vulnerabilities. they showed 51 vulnerabilities for safari, 40 for chrome, 20 for firefox and 17 for IE for the pass 3 months. all-in-all an interesting article. its in the pc world oct 2010. i have met more than a few people who hate IE but i never asked why. as for me, i use IE out of habit mostly. at least on pc. the browser that comes with the device is what im likely to use for that device.
