Browser is unimportant with exception of attacks specifically exploiting IE,
otherwise it doesn't matter if you have IE, FireFox, Mozilla, etc - note
FireWalls block ports used by bad investing software, it actually doesn't
block viruses, worms, malware, Trojans and spyware - that's what AV, Adware,
Spybot, etc type software is form.
