IE has had over 95% of the browser market share since 2002. Following the string of reported exploits and CERT'* public condemnation, IE'* market share dropped about 1 percentage point last month. That still left IE with a 94.74 percent market share on July 6.
It'* only logical that hackers and virus writers focus on IE, just as they focus on the Windows operating systems, because it gives them the largest target for their malicious wares. But if computer users take CERT'* recommendations to heart and switch to another browser, it'* likely that attackers will also switch targets and start digging out exploits for those browsers. After all, back in the 90s when Netscape had a large share of the browser market, we were always reading about exploits affecting it.
