A truce in the browser wars for the sake of security

November 23, 2005

Here is a follow up to my previous post about the major browser venders getting together to discuss browser security. The Opera developers who attended the meeting just wrote their take on the matter.

Here is a snippet:

“It’s good to see all of us put aside our marketing wars for a few days and get down to what really matters: making the Internet a safer place for the people who use our products, whether its Opera, Firefox, IE or Konqueror. The onus for end-user security increasingly rests on the browser vendors. After all, it’s our products that stand between the scammers and the scammed.We can compete over so many aspects of our products, but security at this level requires cooperation and collaboration. And by sitting down at the same table, we have done more to enhance the security of the Internet than we could competing alone.”

    I think I’ll ask the question most people are wondering…why no Safari representative?

    From the IE blog posting “other browser vendors were invited but weren’t able to attend”.
