Only that there are even more free browsers out than the Mozillas.

How does Opera rank (my favourite)?

And listing many bugs doesn't mean that the program is bad, only that
it is strongly under supervision. Corrections may come earlier or
later, and *how fast* is more important than *how many found*.

Imagine a crappy browser that nobody seems to care about and which
isn't maintained at all. Is it more or less secure than Firefox, seeing
that there is no *public* information about its security flaws?

I apologize for replying to a troll.  :-/

"Versions two and three of the popular [Firefox] browser were found to
have 40 known vulnerabilities over the course of the year."

Count for yourself. Internet Explorer has the most *unpatched*
vulnerabilities in the history of the products.

Firefox 3 for 2008

Try Seamonkey. Works well, is fast, and similar to Netscape.
