Never read the news heh.

Try getting a port scan log of your machine. There are so many zombie machines on the internet hunting for vunerable machines. And there is always a gap between the worm and the patch.
As for performance, I am also on latest patch, and I do not see much of a difference in performance, infact tbhp is one of the few sites which seem to run better in IE. Guess it depends on machine to machine and extensions installed.

Its easy to make a site firefox compatible/IE/comptible/netscape compatible, but thats not the right way.
Haa haa haaa... yes of course, I will hand you that one. In an ideal world designers should design applications that meet the W3 standards, but then that is the ideal world.

The problem is many of those ideal and recommended stuffs may not be so well accepted by IE but always has a IE specific work-around. Call it the MS hegemony or whatever. At the end of the day if my client cribs about the fact that his application is not benefiting from all those IE features that it should I as a designer have to look into that aspect. Afterall he is paying for it.

Ok... the websites... maybe... but you should see the requirements they come up with for applications. They want the desktop UIs replicated as it is with all those features. Now even if they are non-standard, MS provides many of them in IE (and probably that is why IE has more security flaws)! So at the end of the day non-standard things do creep in which will not run on anything but IE. And there are host of such things...

I have been using Firefox both on my desktop and the laptop. It works well on my Solaris desktop. I have XP, SUSE 10 and Solaris Nevada on my laptop and FF works well everywhere. No issues so far.

Well, As per your suggestion just tried that!, and NOTHING. my machine is invisible! (no its not behind a proxy or router.. its a direct static IP)

Anyways, the topic here was that firefox crashes!, well it doesn't!, nor does IE or Opera.

Infact, if you have a clean machine with good hardware nothing crashes!, I normally keep my PC up for weeks together, maximum uptime being 20 days (after which power failure forced me to shut down).

No my car doesn't knock anymore! not at all.
I think a perfect valve clearence adjustment did the trick in my case.

2nd gear 80s.. don't remember doing that in a long time now.

Just this monday night I floored it on the DND, kept waiting for it to cross 140kms/h, but it didn't. Managed 138 something... .. but again its pretty old now 5.25 years (60k kms)... its got a 155 tyres... and it was 5th gear!.
