Security-conscious users will have a choice to make in the next week.
Software maker Opera released the latest version of its browser, Opera
9.5, on Thursday, and rival Mozilla announced it would release a major
update of its Firefox browser on June 17. Both browsers add a number of
security-focused features, chief among them technology designed to
block the downloading and execution of malicious code. Microsoft's next
major version of its browser, Internet Explorer 8, is currently in beta
and will also include anti-malware features.
