Internet Explorer 8 continues to be the best in breed browser when it comes down to offering end users security compared to rivals that, without exception, are considered to be more secure than IE by default in the publicís perception. Itís not the first time that IE8ís superiority over browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Opera has been attested, for the protection that the browsers offer end users against socially engineered malicious code. According to NSS Labs, Internet Explorer 8 is capable of blocking at least approximately three times more malware than any of its rivals.

I would like to see test results of FF using Adblock and NoScript addons. The test as run does not tell us very much except that IE8 has more built in security than other browsers. It also does not address the ease of configuration for the average user. No security measure is worth a flip if the user doesn't use it or know how to use it.
