It might be about time to switch to Opera.
Thanks to a friggin Firefox exploit I got a virus last night. Not sure how I got it. I was only browsing my regular sites, but I guess you never know. I know that it’s Firefox’s fault because that’s the classification that the virus scan called it.
It said it couldn’t quarantine it or delete it, but it “moved” it. Oh thanks! Just move that virus around on my hard drive. So hopefully it’s moved far enough away that it doesn’t cause a problem. But according to http://www.secunia.com Firefox has the largest number of known security exploits next to Internet Explorer.
Firefox — 43
Safari — 6
Opera — 6
I love Firefox and everything, but it’s starting to fall victim to the same thing that plauges Internet Explorer. Mainstream use. It doesn’t matter how secure you claim something is. If there’s a large enough group of people using it, idiots are going to spend time trying to figure out how to exploit it. So I think it’s Opera time. Until that catches on then I guess I’ll have to go to something else.
