Accuvant Study Finds Chrome is Most Secure Browser
The study was financed by Google, though Accuvant says it was an 'independently designed security analysis.'
A study [PDF file] conducted by Accuvant on behalf of Google has determined that Google Chrome is the most secure browser, thanks to its sandboxing tech.
"The evaluation was based on the premise that anti-exploitation technology, such as sandboxing, reduces the vulnerability of a browser to a single exploit or an entire class of exploits," Infosecurity reports. "While Accuvant stressed that this was an 'independently designed security analysis,' it was funded by Google."
"Based on this premise, Google Chrome was ranked first, while Internet Explorer came in second and Firefox was third," the article states.
