    I was under the understanding all iOS browsers had to use Webkit and were thus all subject to the same flaw?

    When I advised the reader to switch to an alternative browser, I was meaning on the as-yet still unpatched OS X; a better fix for iOS is to install 6.1.6 or 7.0.6, which fixes the problem properly.

    OS X 10.9.2 is out now, and according to my testing just now fixes the flaw. If you're an Appleite, update now - don't delay.
