Web browsers typically don't run as root and don't run on servers, but
work stations.  They also require users to access "infected" sites.

Daemons on internet facing systems generally provide access to application
data (eg a web application) or system resources (eg ssh) with higher
priveleges and are candidates for automated zombie attacks and, therefore,
have a much bigger risk profile.
