Boosted Security for IE9, Says Security Firm Avira
IE9 Comes with Boosted Security, Says Security Firm Avira
Internet Explorer 9 features additional security mitigations designed to provide end users with enhanced protection in comparison to its predecessors, as Microsoft already indicated, and as Avira confirmed recently.
Security is after all one of the aspects of IE’s evolution, and the fact is that new security features have been added to Internet Explorer as the browser moved from one version to another.
Internet Explorer 9 continues to feature mitigations built into older versions of IE, including a phishing filter, anti-XSS protection and the InPrivate browsing mode.
In addition, the Redmond company now focused on increasing the protection that end users enjoy when downloading content from the web.
The new Download Manager built into IE9 is set up to check for malware infections, to verify digital signatures, etc. But it does come with a twist, as it is capable of dividing suspicious and potentially malicious files from legitimate downloads.

Thanks for this, Jan, nice read
I love the new download manager as I can always use any failed download (and even a successful one) to go back to the page containing the download link right away instead of searching for the download again, totally awesome. IMHO best IE9 feature yet, saved me a lot of time.
