of IE and Firefox

Brian Krebs put up an excellent article at the Washington Post, analyzing how many days in 2006 IE was vulnerable because of critical, unpatched security problems for which documentation and/or exploit code was available online. IE’s record is abysmal: 284 days of vulnerability, or more than 9 months.

In contrast, Firefox had exactly one period of 9 days in 2006 where a patch for a critical vulnerability was not available.
