Funny my friend mentioned about using an old version of IE would be really secure because its so old that all the newer malware stuff is incompatible with it. I think he was just saying it jokingly as it wouldn't be practical to use IE 1.0/2.0/3.0.

Opera would probably be safer than FireFox at this point.

Maybe, maybe, with Firefox at the default settings with no extensions. But once you install security extensions like NoScript, Fx 2.0 eats everything else up like a plate of bacon.
