The Internet Storm Center shares some recent links that ALL BROWSERS have issues. I can see this as a browser is simply a tool that brings back objects from a web site.

While FF and Opera are rated as safer than IE currently, I wouldn't rest on that alone. For example, Secunia documents brand new tabular browser vulnerabilities for both FF and Opera.

Keeping Windows patched, your AV protection updated, a good Firewall, ramping up IE or other browser security settings, and thinking before you click are all imperative for the user community.
