Internet Explorer is besieged with security flaws while Safari adds support for RSS and non-standard extensions. Is this the start of Browser War II? Can Mozilla-based browsers corner 6% of the market by year end? And if they do, will they be targeted by the same crackers who go after IE flaws? Does the potential for "tag soup" sound like what Microsoft did to the browser market in 1996?

Brendan and The Gang also discuss a number of new browser features including an embedded rich-text editor and support for a better plug-in installation technology.
