IE 98% Insecure

In a recent study reported here, Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser when kept fully patched, was known to be insecure for 98% of 2004. In the same study Mozilla Firefox was known to be insecure for 15% of 2004 and Opera's Browser was insecure 17%. Thus in the year 2004 there were only seven days in 2004 that IE was known to be secure...

Microsoft is a multi billion dollar corporation, Opera is a tiny company and Mozilla is just a bunch of hackers. It's frightening to think that one of the biggest software companies in the world couldn't keep IE free of known defects for more than one week in a whole year... In the same year two tiny groups managed to keep their browser safe for over 80% of time.
