Study finds IE9 is better at blocking malware than Chrome, Safari, and Firefox combined

Quote:
Is Microsoft’s Windows Internet Explorer 9 the most secure browser out there? It depends who you ask. A study published today by NSS Labs says that indeed Microsoft bests Google, Mozilla, and Apple when it comes to blocking malware.

NSS tested Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9, Google Chrome versions 15 through 19, Mozilla Firefox versions 7 through 13, and Apple Safari 5 to see which of the big four are best at protecting users against leading forms of malware linked to bank fraud, password theft, fake antivirus scams, and click fraud.

Thanks for the interesting read. My primary web browser is IE9 and I often wondered how it stacked up against the other browsers. Good to know.
