Number of Browser Bugs

According to Symantec’s twice-yearly Internet Security Threat Report, the number of bugs found by browser during the first 6 months of this year is as follows:

Mozilla browsers: 47
Internet Explorer: 38
Safari: 12
Opera: 7

Interesting that Mozilla browsers had more bugs than IE. I wonder if it’s because Mozilla is gaining in popularity, or if Microsoft is actually doing a better job in designing more secure software? Also, reading this report made me go download Opera right away. :)
