sorry, but *that* is nonsense
while i am firefox user and don't like it as default on live-media just
because there was a security bug is nonsense as argument, given that we
would need to kill nearly any package out of Fedora because all software
in the past few years had more or less critical security bugs
The point is, as I wrote, Konqueror is very unlikely to get targeted by an
attack. Firefox, on the other hand, is an attractive target and does get
exploited in the wild (as the example has shown).
All software has security holes. But only software with a high market share
is an interesting attack target.
