Of course the most widely used browser has the most problems because it's a bigger target. Other browsers have weak spots too and those are being exploited also. No browser is immune to hacks. Same goes for Windows which is the most widely used OS. Macs gets hacked too.. no one is safe.

It's easy to find sources saying otherwise:

It's not the most widely used browser and has had a minority share for a while now.

(IE=54%, 2.7x more users than FF and by far the largest share)

It does remain the least secure browser, however.

Not according to those sources. IE is by far the most secure it seems:
