... thats not bad... but used to be better. What's up? Neither Firefox 4, nor InternetExplorer 9, nor Chrome is so new you couldn't support them by now. Esp. FF4 and IE9 did not come out of nothing. There have been long run beta phases to allow for testing.

Hi ,

When there is a browser "platform" change , in my experience , there is always a significant delay with the Secunia PSI in displaying said browser in the "Secure Browsing" module .

The PSI only tracks and monitors RTM/RTW versions ; so Alpha , Beta and RC's are not followed , monitored and never displayed ; unless there is a Stable/Beta version overlap , as occasionally happens with The Google Chrome browser .

Of the final releases , the new IE9 platform has been out a while and is still to make "secure browsing" so I hear ( no proof , I'm an XP OS person) : Ff 4.0 is only out for a day or so and Chrome 10.x Stable is somewhere in between .

This is normal with the Secunia PSI , so no instant gratification ?! As it has been said , "patience is a virtue" and as you say 2 out of 5 ain't bad ; you get what you pay for ;))

Take care

Anthony
