    You left out this part:

    For all of 2006, however, the numbers were nearly neck and neck: Firefox was nailed by 87 flaws during the
    12 months, IE by 92.

    or this one:

    In the first 6 months of 2006 Mozilla browsers had the most vulnerabilities , 47, compared to 38 in Microsoft
    Internet Explorer.

    This is but one metric and has little to do with the overall security of the browser.
