Hello,

i will research this in detail, normally Iron isn't accected of most bugs because it uses a much newer Webkit.

OK. Does this mean that Iron is safer than Google Chrome & Safari 4?

An update info for your pleasure for tonight

Safari 4.0.5 stable ----------------- WebKit/531.22.7 ---(2010-03-13)
Chrome 4.1.249.1036 stable ----- WebKit/532.5 ------ (2010-03-17)
SRware Iron 4.0.280.0 stable ----- WebKit/532.9 ----- (2010-01-27)
SRware Iron 5.0.326.0 alpha ----- WebKit/533.1----- (2010-02-28)
Chromium 5.0.360.0 nightly ----- WebKit/533.3 ----- (2010-03-22)

Despite update of Safari, Chrome browsers was released few days ago, You can see, they are old ! (older build of WebKit) and possibly unsecure (look at Secunia for more)
