Firefox Whips Internet Explorer In Vulnerability Tally

Published March 12th, 2006
From Yahoo News: Symantec Rethinks Firefox vs IE Security, Using Its Brain This Time I wasn't the only one who was incredulous when Symantec gave the security edge to IE in a study they released last year. Now, it seems that some in Symantec were not pleased, either. That study was driven more by vendor payments than objective analysis, unlike the new one, which clearly gives the edge to Firefox. Symantec isn't the only company that really needs to worry about its credibility when accepting money from a vendor for doing analysis. The sham results we see so often make it impossible to engage in reasonable debate on matters like this... and reasonable debates on OS security, ROI, usability, and much more are very much needed nowadays!
