If you can read the file then firefox can read it and send it back to the website that infected your browser.

The big problem with confining desktop applications is the way the desktop has been designed.

5 Reasons Not To "Not Use Linux"

2000+ people have already watched Tim's video and that is potentially 2000 people that might not use Linux based on invalid arguments. Hopefully a few more people will read this article and therefore redress the balance somewhat. Before I go I wanted to mention that Tim has produced his own counter argument called "5 Reasons To Use Linux".
