NSS Security Test: More Details EmergeHere are some more details from Ars Tecnica, which should clarify Microsoft and NSS Labs “sponsorship” deal.

In terms of sponsorship of the reports, “this stuff is expensive to do right, and we need to monetize it somehow,” Moy told Ars. “We invited Google, Mozilla, Apple, Opera to participate, but they didn’t even bother to respond, except for Opera, which stated they “don’t really focus on malware.”

Also, readers have noticed that Firefox 3.5 was not included in those tests, here is a reason (as from .pdf).

We would have liked to have been able to test Firefox 3.5 which was released on June 30, 2009, and attempted to test it alongside the other browsers. However, serious instability where the browser repeatedly crashed (a widely reported issue) along with poor results prevented its inclusion for the sake of fairness.
