Thanks. The whole section is quite a draft and seriously: it needs more
details than we have right now, even with your corrections.

Actually that's not the point about this wiki-page; it's more about what
specific things can go wrong, not about what kind of special exploits a
several application is suffering of.
Even all those Mozilla-browsers have their own problems so i want to
keep this specific section open.

The questions are:
* Where do those applications compromise anonymity?
* What plugins are known to be shit?

That's fairly generic - there's no need for another "my browers's better
than yours"-thing.

Thanks for your input anyway! :-)

Oh yeah. I'll be testing me very own setup on thursday.
