Considering that MS are reducing staffing levels, you would think that someone would realise that continued development of IE is a waste of time, money and manpower.
An exit strategy is long overdue, but it will come eventually.

I don't mind that IE's near-monopoly is slipping. But if all those users migrate to Firefox, that will make it a much tastier target for malware authors.

firefox users are like apple users right now.
secure cause nobody is bothering to target them so they are fooled into a false sence of security. That will soon change.

There should be zero security holes in properly written software. It is entirely possible that Firefox code is cleaner and intrinsically more secure than Internet Explorer.
Given that Firefox is open-source, programmers are more likely to write clean code (since it's on public show) and clean code will always be more secure that dirty code.

don't forget that people install 10000 plug ins to FF, even if the code is clean the plugins can still be exploited

The only time I use IE is Windows Update. I can't use IE 64, am forced to use IE 32. Makes you wonder as to accessibility for Update in the future. :)
As for FF plugins, I use very few, but the ones I do are strong. All the rest are toys of some kind or other.
