I agree with those that believe that the Internet Browsers (other than Microsoft IE) have enjoyed a lack of attacks because their flaws have not yet been taken advantage of.
As the use of the alternative browsers grows, there will be more attention given by the "bad-guys" to identify and devise attacks of flaws.
This could make the users of these browsers vulnerable to a great many problems that the users of MIE don't have to worry about due to the ongoing efforts by Microsoft to fix flaws, and the many 3rd party security programs in place to protect MIE from attacks.
It may be that the "honeymoon" is over, and the alternative browsers may become a liability instead of the asset they have been until now.
