Best Browser for Blocking Fraud? Opera!

Quote:
In the movies, hackers work hard breaking into electronic networks to steal passwords. In the real world, they just politely ask for your credentials using a phishing website designed to look exactly like a valid financial website. If you log in to the fake website, you compromise your own security.


Fortunately, most popular browsers include some degree of antiphishing protection. Unfortunately, their effectiveness varies widely. AV-Comparatives just released the results of a test examining how well popular browsers detect and block these frauds.
