    If this had any real world meaning, I ought to have been infected long ago using FF. But NoScript and Avira have kept me safe. Non-issue. FF is far from perfect, but the add-ons and the control they give me over how the browser operates make it my choice.

    I am, too.

    I have been a Firefox guy for a long time, but I have recently started trying out IE 10. I get better results on some web sites for reasons that I don't understand, Firefox had started giving me issues on opening pictures or videos-never could determine why.

    IE 10 has its own set of quirks (when I close it, it often gives a message saying "IE 10 has closed unexpectedly." No, it hasn't. I just closed it). And I have to use the compatibility view setting for a number of my business sites. I still use Firefox, but I am currently probably about 80% IE 10.
