    Medium Risk Vulnerabilities 0
    Low Risk Vulnerabilities 0

    firefox standard install on liunx with 0 risks, windows or linux i still think firefox is more secure. Be interesting if someone can prove me wrong.

    Firefox has 8 vulnerabilities. Telnetting to the webserver and manually entering the GET command has none. Do I get a cookie?
    Joking aside, there will always be vulnerabilities in software, and there will always be different ways of developing software. I think it's safe to say for the time being that Firefox is more secure than IE, however it's not really easy to gauge what future versions will be like. I remember a time when Mozilla vulnerabilities were being introduced at a rate far greater than IE vulnerabilities.
