I bet half of those are for Runescape and WoW accounts. I use Mozilla and I'm very careful to the websites I visit. I'm thinking about switching to Chrome once everything is better established.

True, like Budwiser.

You have to be carefull all the time regardless what browser you use.

Any news on Google Chrome compared to the best browsers?

Humm..I don't have any benchmarks on me, but it's pretty quick. I think it was a little faster than Mozilla and it killed IE. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer the features mozilla and IE do. That'll definitely come with time. I'm just waiting for them go get a secure foundation before I make the switch.

Of course it's typical. When you have the most popular and widely used browser in the world, people are going to work hard to exploit it.

Agreed. It's same reason why you don't see anyone trying to push out viruses for Macs. Far more people use Windows.
