What the whole thing makes you realize, of course, is that there isn’t really the equivalent of a money-back guarantee in terms of security. Personally, I don’t think 10 days is too short a timeframe for an organization that wants its browser to be taken seriously against Internet Explorer. Especially if we were talking about a flaw that someone was actually exploiting.
