|Just wait to they become really popular among average computer users, where the hackers start targeting them and then we'll see how safe it really is. |
The real security issue here is not marketshare, it's the fact that IE is so deeply integrated with the operating system. That makes it inherently insecure. That and ActiveX.
Also, notice the relative marketshares of Apache and IIS. And yet, it's IIS that's always getting hacked and new vulnerabilities always being found.
