Windows 7: Best Internet Browser

I like Chrome it has Flash built in, lots of neat extensions and is IMO faster than any other browser. I also like the sync feature (gmail account needed) which saves all my addons, bookmarks and passwords so it will be the same experience on whatever PC I'm currently using.

Maybe when they change to the WebKit engine things will improve.

Here are the tests if anyone is interested: Security: Security - Tests Web standards 1: The HTML5 test - How well does your browser support HTML5? Web standards 2: The Acid3 Test
I am not sure, if one can trust Browserscope testing for security. Especially, when Firefox passes the "Sandbox attribute", which it does not support. To my knowledge, only Chrome and IE9/10 support running the browser in a sandboxed environment by default. The NSS Labs' test for browser security is probably more accurate:

IE10 and Chrome performed well, while Firefox performed poorly in tandem with Safari.
I thought as of two or so releases ago Firefox did have the Flash sandbox from Adobe? I remember the whole issue with Flash not playing right, and some people had to disable Protected Mode to use it, but it's fixed in releases after the first. So if it does have sandboxing then it should pass right?
