Security Status of Firefox

“The different approach taken on the Mozilla Project is to keep users in control and aware of dangerous actions like downloading, installation, and execution of remote code. We also think it is important to engage security experts on the Mozilla project (any security researcher can download all the code), encourage security research (we offer $500 bug bounties to encourage research), and to act quickly on the feedback we get from these experts. A study by scanit.be (an independent security research firm) shows the dramatic difference in response time and the ability to stay on top of security problems between Microsoft and the Mozilla Project.”
