the most widely used browser has the most problems because it's a bigger target.

That's really not true. It's poorly written and badly maintained. MS don't put the effort into making it secure. It's most people's main tool and in use for security critical operations by practically every MS Windoze user. It should be bullet-proof simply because it is, in many ways, the face of MS.

If IE were a lot more secure it would still be the main target for hackers simply because it's the biggest payoff potential when you crack it. The problem is there are more cracks to find than there should be.
