Re: Windows XP and Firefox take 25-year lead in security flaws

I agree with that point. IE should not be "part of Windows OS", as they made it. Lot of problems come with it.

A big issue with IE and why so many system wide exploits happened with it is a lot to do with how tight it was with the windows OS itself.

As I recall that started with Active Desktop on WinNT 4.0 and Win95.

I never liked the tight coupling between IE and the OS but presumably Microsoft saw it is a marketing advantage.

One thing I think many miss with Microsoft is that the target, for the most part, of their products is not IT professionals or other computer literate users. They aim their stuff at the "average user". That said one can argue that Apple has done a much better job of that.
