If you had read the article carefully, you would have noted that
Netscape updated their download file late Thursday and the current
download has the security risk fixed.

YOUR INFORMATION IS OUT OF DATE!

No - actually my information is not out of date - it is still correct - the
first security patches have been released since the initial release.
Sadly (predictably some would argue) only a short time after the browswer
was released to the public.

Not to mention that is why I pointed to the article... If it can have
defects on day 1... it will have defects on day 500.
Just proving there is no perfect browser... After all, if there was - then
there would have been no point in Netscape still trying in the first place.

They all have their idiosyncrocies.

Firefox won't save my login properly for my cellular account. The login
id is my phone number, but it's in 3 separate fields. Firefox only
saves the last field, 4 numbers. Netscape 7.2 & 8.0.1 save the entire
number correctly.

You just have to be smarter than the browser!

But the point is you did not read the article. The early release on
Thursday morning was based on Firefox 1.0.3 and Netscape quickly updated
the download version with the Firefox 1.0.4 security fix and that is
what is now available.

It is also a very real fact that there are fewer security and privacy
risks in Opera 8.00, Firefox 1.0.4, and now Netscape 8.0.1.

So, your information is still just as out of date as it was in the
beginning!

There is a lot of misinformation, and some very bad reasons to switch from
IE to FireFox.
For example, the "common knowledge" that FireFox is "more secure than IE"
simply is false. Switching to FireFox for that particular reason--- in the
belief that you'll magically and automatically be more secure, is just plain
wrong.

Perhaps you should read before you respond... I left my first response to
you above so you could go back and see that not only did I read it, but my

You are wrong, FireFox, from a security point of view, is much more
secure than IE - it doesn't allow Active-X, which makes it leaps and
bounds above IE.

FireFox, while it's had a few issues since it came out of beta, has been
patched quickly and even alerts users that a new version is available.

I've moved most clients from IE 6 with patches to FireFox and it's
updated versions in the last few months. One of the first things I
noticed was the immediate decrease in tool-bars installed, spyware
installed, crapware installed, and pop-ups decreased (even over IE6). I
found that users had no problem switching, except for the ones accessing
ADP services via IE, and they are setup to use IE.

Most of the basic support issues have been lessened by using FireFox.

Then, if you think you have made some valid point, give me an example of
any software that has ever been produced that didn't have a defect!

No such software has ever existed, and probably never will! So, your
point is absolutely pointless!
