THE VEDA: Firefox vs IE <body>

Firefox vs IE



Firefox, the open-source browser, developed by Mozilla is gaining its popularity among the browsers, as it is light and sleek.It is believed that Firefox has less security threats compared to Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE).

But the latest report by Symantec (California based security major), shows that Firefox are more vulnerable to attack than IE.According to the report there are 25 vulnerabilities in Firefox, of which 18 were found to be severe.In the case of IE, there are 13 vulnerabilities, and among them 8 were severe.Symantec defined these severe vulnerabilities as "resulting in a compromise of the entire system if exploited".But according to another security monitoring company, Secunia, there are 19 security issue that IE has to overcome. So these reports will arise a bitter confusion among the professionls in selecting the one, among the two.

Whatever it may be, personally I love the unique- Firefox.

I anxiously hope that the Firefox group would look into the vulnerabilties mentione above, and get it rectified rapidly.
