IE 8 Safer than Firefox, Riskier than Opera

Microsoft pulled out all the stops to make IE 8 its safest browser ever. Apparently, Opera pulled out a few more, as security company Cenzic says Opera is the most secure browser in the market. IE 8 came in second and, in a shocking result, Firefox came in dead last.

Keep in mind that this is the opinion of one company. I'm not ready to give up on IE 8 and jump to Opera. In fact, when the next release of Firefox emerges, I'm going to give it a shot. If I like it, I'll probably switch back. (I've had no problems with Firefox until I moved to Windows 7 and couldn't install Flash.)
