Internet Explorer trounces rivals in blocking socially engineered malware
Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Firefox, and Opera score low marks in third-party testing

Microsoft Internet Explorer suffers a reputation for being insecure, but a recent test by NSS Labs reveals that the browser, especially the recently released Version 9, is the best candidate for protecting users from socially engineered malware.

In fact, both IE 8 and 9 put rival browsers Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera to shame: Whereas IE 8 blocked 90 percent of socially engineered malware and IE 9 stopped 99 percent, the next best performer was Firefox 3.6, which detected just 19 percent. (The report is available for download from NSS Labs (PDF).)
