No application is perfect. There has been times when using Opera that i got a install screwed. Mainly my fault for messing with it. But it still happened.

I've got 1 trojan using ff for the past 3-4 years. I got hundreds when I used to use IE back in 2000-2001. I never got one through Netscape (2002-2003)

No browser will prevent stupidity. Anyone who surfs unprotected WILL end up with something that won't wash off in the shower.

IE is not idiot-proof... but neither is Firefox or Opera. It all falls back to the user, period.

I use Firefox due to the customizability factor. I also use IE Tab in Firefox, and use IE on occassion (mainly at work). I have tried Opera, but it wanted to take over which ain't good with the fat man.
