Spyware Makers Noticing Firefox
from the what-else-can-we-switch-to? dept
Many people have pointed out recently that the reason "alternative" browsers like Safari, Firefox and Opera seemed to be more secure than IE was because no one was using them. That is, they aren't any more secure in reality, but the people who exploit security holes saw no reason to target them. With the recent growth (and related attention) of Firefox, however, some now expect spyware makers to start targeting that browser as well. The question, really, is how well Firefox/Mozilla will be able to fend off these attacks compared to IE. That might show how secure Firefox really is in comparison to IE.
