Security!

24 Feb 2009 Ferado

So I just finished reading a Web 2.0 book on security. I didn’t really like the book but it did have some things in there that were good, and that’s what this post is about. But don’t buy the book and I’m not going to name the book. You might be wondering why I hated the book (and yet I’m blogging about something good that came from the book), well, the reason I hated the book was because when it mentioned browsers that were unsecure, it mentioned Firefox and Opera. Now, I don’t know much about Opera, so I could care less that Opera was mentioned. But what really drove me nuts was that it mentioned Firefox. It’s like the book hasn’t heard of IE6, the shittiest of shit browsers still available on the market.

But anyway, one plug for Firefox 3.0 – it renders JavaScript faster than the other browsers. I think the only browser that may or may not be faster, is Chrome from Google. Which shouldn’t be a surprise because someday Google is going to own the air we breathe.

I digress. The whole point of this post was to list some security sites for the people out there that want to keep up2date on things. So here’s the list, in no particular order:

Now this isn’t a very long list, and it’s definately not the whole list of security sites. But this should be enough to keep you up2date on web security.
