Although ordered to let Windows users choose which browser they would prefer, a Microsoft "technical error" meant 28 million Windows 7 users were given no choice at all.
The upcoming releases of Internet Explorer 10, Firefox 14 and Chrome 21 are all fighting for our attention and using security as the reason why.
The latest release of Firefox has been called "unlucky version 13" because it creates web page thumbnails even of secure content, sparking privacy fears.
But is this really a bug? And if so, do any of the "fixes" circulating online actually work? Paul Ducklin finds out.
Mozilla developer Jared Wein is introducing a new security feature to Firefox 14 called click-to-play. Plugins will not load automatically when visiting websites using things like Flash and Java requiring the user to click before the content is loaded. This could prevent many common drive-by attacks on the web.
A popular Firefox add-on appears to have started leaking private information about every website that users visit, including sensitive data which could identify individuals or reduce their security to a third-party server.

Firefox 6.0.2 has just come out, blocking even more browser certificates than Firefox 6.0.1, in yet more fallout from the mess caused by disgraced Dutch web security company DigiNotar.
Firefox 6 is out. This is the second under Firefox's new 'single-line railway track with regular stations' development and release regimen.
Mozilla's security advisory page wrongly denotes this as low impact; in fact, it fixes several critical vulnerabilities.

Mozilla released an update to Firefox 5 yesterday - but for Mac users only.
This takes Mac users of the popular browser to version 5.0.1. Everyone else stays at 5.0.

Paul Ducklin ferrets out the security fixes so you don't have to.
New fake anti-virus attacks are circulating that pretend to be critical updates from Microsoft Update. Don't fall for the lure, only install updates initiated through update.microsoft.com.
