Sounds like a good thing to me. I wonder if Netscape is covered, since I'm sure some people still use it for fun. But there are enough browsers out there for this not to be a problem.
You can't just make a browser the default... there's competition. Even MS got took a law suit for including IE. Plus, although FF is popular, it's still in the minority. If #1, more virus' would be targetted for it. Right now IE still has the most.
They have to post this all other the place because if some people do not know what Paypal is going to do ,they will lose their accounts and it is not their fault for that!
Softix:Well i know us firefox users are safe and i never liked ie they should just make firefox the default browser for the internet and make all programers join and make it even safer
Uh hu... and if I swithed today there would be still sites that I wouldn't beable to access thanks to FF. Its user preference to what they can use. Obviously IE has more market penatration since its been around since the beginning, and its the default browser on many computers. As well big companies when they lock down PC's, well there is only IE on them so unless you tell huge companies to open up to use a new browser, and yet still have IE on there for those other tasks, doubtful that it will happen.
Once something becomes popular, it will be targeted plain and simple.
