limits scripts to run only from sites that you've approved. basically this exploit is a javascript which through FF allows someone to take over your computer...supposedly

noscript only let's scripts from sites you trust run. so like if you visited TLZ and we had a script (which we do, for the tabs on the top of the page). then a dialogue box would come up saying if you allow it. you click yes, the javascipt does its thing, you say no, it doesn't run.

"Firefox led the pack both in terms of absolute number of vulnerabilities disclosed on the last six months, and in terms of percentage growth over the year"

They also had the shortest time frame in fixing those issues.
Very true, they have a very short time from exploits going public to patches released, as compared to IE... hours instead of weeks. Ever heard of patch Tuesday?

People say the same thing about OSX and Linux. The popularity has little to do with the security of the software. Unix was written from the ground up for security. Windows is a chain of software updates on a single user system. I mean XP was the first consumer Microsoft OS to have file system permissions, and any !server operating systems have almost no controls on process memory. Please, look into the situation before you blindly parrot the MS party line.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? The average consumer can barely get AOL functioning let alone set permissions. Take a look at your WiFi neigborhood as most folks can't even setup their security.
