Google Chrome is the most secured Browser according to a new research conducted by researchers from security firm Accuvant. Security firm Accuvant reported that Chrome is the most secured browser against attacks, Accuvant evaluated three most widely used browsers Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, the research finds that Google Chrome is currently the browser that is most secured against attacks. ”Anybody who surfs the internet is familiar with malware, spyware and viruses. These malicious programs can lead to system pop-ups, slowdowns, account takeovers, and theft of credit card data, social security numbers and other personally identifiable information. While antivirus and anti-malware can help prevent infection, the first line of defense is using a secure web browser,” said Ryan Smith, chief scientist for Accuvant. “Accuvant is dedicated to providing essential services, like this in-depth, proactive research, that help protect vendors, companies, government agencies, and the public-at-large against those with malicious intent.”
Accuvant Conclusion stated the following:
The URL blacklisting services offered by all three browsers will stop fewer attacks than will go undetected. Both Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer implement state-of-the-art anti exploitation technologies, but Mozilla Firefox lags behind without JIT hardening. While both Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer implement the same set of anti-exploitation technologies, Google Chrome’s plug-in security and sandboxing architectures are implemented in a more thorough and comprehensive manner. Therefore, we believe Google Chrome is the browser that is most secured against attack.
