personally I don't believe that netscape is secure just because it is technically a hybrid between IE and firefox/mozilla. we all know IE has been patched many times for critical flaws over the years and firefox has also had a few itself as it began its climb towards popularity. older versions of firefox do indeed have quite a few flaws. In many ways, the security of a browser depends on how popular it is, so it's entirely relative. There aren't many advisories about the flaws in opera 8 but opera has still not become very popular, mainly because you have to pay to use it.

its like windows. so many people use it these days that security issues are bound to occur frequently. I am an advocate of linux myself but its understandable why windows might be thought of as being vulnerable when its the popularity that makes it a target.
