    Back in the mid-'90s, they called it the Browser Wars: Netscape Navigator vs. Microsoft Internet Explorer. But that score was settled long ago, when America Online ironically bought out Netscape while using IE as its default browser. For the past few years, IE has dominated Web browsing, growing to about a 95 percent market share

    "Of course, even the alternative browsers are vulnerable to hack attacks and security holes. A recent vulnerability was found in an open-source image-file format, .png, that affected browsers running on Linux, Windows, and the Mac. A good sign for Firefox supporters, though, was that Mozilla issued a patch before Microsoft or Apple did. That type of quick reaction is what it will take for an upstart to keep the pressure on Microsoft. "

    This is just it :!:

    IE is the biggest, so, abviously the script kiddies are exploiting it's security vulnerabilities.

    And back in the days of the, "Browser Wars", Netscape had their fair share of security problems also.

    The other browsers are VULNERABLE also. But they're SO SMALL no one really CARES about messing with them.

    I will really like to see a browser way, at the moment IE is too dominant to call it a war but you never know.... FireFox might just eat away at IE's share more and more
