I can't understand why they are comparing themselves to FireFox 7. Also, why are they proud of the number of attacks they block. That simply means they are attacked more often.

I was a bit drunk when I posted that last night (I was at a charity golf outing with kegs on every 3rd hole) so I didn't notice the percentages. I can't believe they are true percentages though. I use nothing but FireFox (unless I need to test something for my job) and have never been a victim of an attack.

I have to think that most large companies don't make the extra effort to mass install FF or Chrome or allow it's employees to do so.

IE HAS to be moderatly stable in order for business to operate with a modicum of faith that it won't fall prety to attack.

That still doesn't answer the question as to why they are comparing themselves to FF7. Why compare your newest version to FF7 which is 5 version ago.

I realize that but they just stared this marketing campaign. There is no reason, other than laziness or to be misleading, to start a marketing campaign with an 8-month old image.

I'm consumed with Chrome's speed. I do use Firefox for interweb listening since the lastest version of Flash isn't enabling my listening needs.
