On http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/security/ Mozilla claims that Firefox is â€œThe Safest Web Browserâ€. Unfortunately they leave a lot of their claims unsupported.
This is something our Jeff Jones looks into. Since a lot of years Jeff looks into figures and metrics around security and is very well known for his vulnerability analysis. So he is looking closer into their claims and analyses them. Just as an example:
Here is the chart with regards to â€œDays of Riskâ€ Mozilla published:
And this is Jeffâ€™s view for Firefox:

As he will publish a series of articles, here are the first two:

- Can Mozilla Support Claims of Firefox Being the Most Secure Web Browser? (Part 2)
If you want to argue about the figures, use Jeffâ€™s articles as he is the one owning the data and knowing what he wanted to say
