Quote from: "C-Chan"- Firefox is still, as of this writing, an open-source browser; so while hundreds of hackers have access to the inner workings of the browser, so do MILLIONS of devoted users who [hypothetically] will know what they're looking at. In essence, thanks to this transparency, the entire browser community can potentially police itself and assist in plugging any security flaws that arise. It's no wonder that Firefox releases security updates continuously.- A sizable portion of malicious-sofware writers are ideological in their approach and should have less incentive to target a "free" communal browser than closed-source one belonging to the 3v1l Micro$oft empire. This helps weed out the idealists from the (probably more numerous) lowlifes and market trolls, the ones who really SHOULD be in jail.- Unlike IE, Firefox is not integrated into your OS. IE is not only targeted because of its popularity, but also because its a potential gateway into your system. That fact that Firefox has trouble with ActiveX content is actually a GOOD thing as far as security is concerned.
Quotewell, I think I don't have anything to say, as C-chan already posted everything I was thinking of .-.
