A while back, I stated that I'd drop FireFox when it hits 25% market share. My reasoning is that as FireFox gains market share, it will gain greater attention from malware writers, and its security advantages will rapidly dissipate.
I'm starting to think of lowering that bar. A niggling little doubt at the back of my mind is wondering if FireFox isn't already becoming a target. But what's the alternative? Safari blows (sorry Mac Fans, but Safari just doesn't cut it for me), Konqueror is Ok on my Linux boxes, but it lacks the extensibility that I've come to rely on with FireFox. Opera is a nice browser, overall, but again, the extensibility just isn't there.
Chrome shows promise, but it's still way to beta to cut it as a daily driver.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Malware is out there... and these days it does not target any one app or os... it is after EVERYTHING it can get into. Of course, if low insertion is the criteria, there's always Google Chrome (which has all the same problems of Safari).
