If you're using Linux, you never had anything to worry about.

And so it begins...


Soon Firefox will be just like IE, with viruses and spyware written specifically to take advantage of its security holes, and you will have to install security updates every month.

The only reason FF is more secure than IE is because nobody writes stuff designed to attack it, and the |33t h4x0r2 crowd use FF themselves. "Don't poop where you eat", the saying goes. That will change as more and more people switch over.

Well to be fair, fixes for FF seem to be alot faster in development then any of the "fixes" M$ Shoves down our throats once a week.

I doubt we will ever see FF as bad as alot of us see IE nowadays.

I'm surprised Bill hasn't made an attempt to buy them out? Or would that create another anti-trust fiasco?

Mozilla.org is a non-profit orginization and cannot be bought out... That's why FF will succeed where NetScape failed.
