browsers are usually extremely stable, not buggy & very virus proofed (at least ones by major corporations)
So far from accurate. Browsers are cracked each year and have more content updates towards security and UI enhancements than many O/S's do. Pwn2Own and Pwnium expose browser flaws every year, sometimes the hack isn't shared with the developer, other times they are and the individual hacking that browser is paid for it.
I haven't even upgraded to IE 8 yet, I am still at like IE 6 or 7. It runs just as well as anything else I've seen so far
The only problem aside from the obvious security flaws of outdated browsers, particularly IE 6/7 is that many of the webpages that either myself or those that I provide support for cannot access to these pages. Several websites these days "require" updated browsers. There are workarounds for some of these but often times, not when a minimum of IE 8 is needed for them to be classified as an updated browser (sadly).
