Google Chrome leads the browser pack at preventing phishing

Quote:
Phishing attacks are an all-too-common threat on the Internet today, but among the top browsers Google's Chrome does the best job of preventing them.

That's according to a recent study by security research firm NSS Labs, the results of which were published on Wednesday.

It comes down to visiting the official websites for products and software downloads. I guess Opera doesn't have a large enough market share to be included within the study?

I installed Google Chrome on my new Recording system PC. However, I started having spike problems in Sonar (my recording program). I ran the DPC latency checker and also saw spikes, that I didn't have before. I tried taming Google by removing the auto update, which I thought was causing the problem but I still got the DPC latency checker spikes. I finally had to run Revo Uninstaller Pro (I have a paid version) with deep registry scanning to get rid of Chrome and other things that Google installed to finally get rid of the latency spikes.

I had used Chrome before, and liked it, on an older PC and didn't notice the problems that I had with the new PC.

Very misleading title. With a 2% error rate in the testing all the browsers were about even in the overall test. In the test for 0 day events and the time it took each browser to catch the new attacks, Google came in last. Read the PDF report for the real story.

When you say latency spikes, do you think it's because chrome runs a bunch of processes? If so there's a command line switch that may help a bit
--renderer-process-limit=n I usually set 'n' to 8. Seems to be '42' returns you to "default" and then you can stop using he param. "Back to out of the box" so to speak. I've been running chromium snap shots for a couple of years because they snap open to a blank page quickly. But I've found the newer FF and Waterfox releases, 16.x .. use lots of memory but perform pretty well with one process.

Plus I feel badly if I can't use SyncPlaces. The chromium bookmark sync is brain dead.

With chrome not running there were still google processes that were interferring. I'm OK with not having Chrome. I.E9 and Firefox do not cause any latency problems.
