I see no point in continuing to push this debate along - neither one of
us is going to have an impact in either the number of Firefox/IE users or
the number of Firefox/IE vulnerabilities.
You're probably right on all regards about establishing the security
difference (who knows, I don't feel like arguing about it).
The bottom line? I guess your definition of universe differs from mine.
Firefox looks incredibly insecure to me. So does Internet Explorer. If
you could define some magic security number and rank all of the Internet
Browsers, Internet Explorer would probably be the worst, followed by
Firefox, followed by the rest of the browsers.
I made this basic claim a number of posts back, and you felt determined
to point out this universe of difference between the two. Frankly, the
gap doesn't seem *that* wide to me. At the end of the day, though, what
have we won? I've wasted a cumulative half an hour arguing over it, and
so have you.
