New web browser security information

A lot of new statistical information has been added to the Web browser security summary resource. Since security is a significant factor in deciding which browser to use, this resource tries to present the situation from as many different angles as possible.

    Thanks David,

    When you talk about vulnerabilities discovered in the wild, are these exploits being used to auto-install spyware, such as the recent CreateTextRange vulnerability in IE?

    I don’t remember reading any reports of Firefox being exposed to such attacks. What is the source of these data?

    In the security summary page, “In the wild” vulnerabilities are those that were publicly known before a patch was available. Those values are not related to public exploits.
