Firefox has more security holes than Internet Explorer?

As crazy as the title of this news post may sound, it's true to some extent. Mozilla Firefox has managed to rack up 10 security holes in 4 months compared to 7 security holes in Internet Explorer within 4 months. The statistics show that having a product that isn't used by 1000s makes it "more secure" as less hackers/spammers need to attack it.

As the release of XPSP2 has just finished up we should see less IE holes over the coming months but if this trend contines then where will Firefox be in 6 months time?
