while browsers are certainly a great attack vector - i still think a 
majority of the issues that arise are due to poorly implemented server 
and client-side code.  That would certainly seem to be the case for 
XSS/SQL Injection/Auth attacks.

It's not clear to me that a majority of the javascript and front-end 
dev's out there fully understand the security implications of the code 
they are writing.  while it's easy to say "ah shitty javascript is 
shitty" - i think there is more than enough blame for w3c standards and 
how browsers and platforms are still pretty incompatible.

so i reckon security usually falls off the table when they have to burn 
cycles still messing around with trying to get UI's consistent b/w 
browsers and platforms.
