The German government's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recently recommended that Windows 7 users run the Chrome browser.

"BSI ticked off Chrome's anti-exploit sandbox technology, which isolates the browser from the operating system and the rest of the computer; its silent update mechanism and Chrome's habit of bundling Adobe Flash, as its reasons for the recommendation," writes Computerworld's Gregg Keizer.

"'This [sandbox] protection is implemented most consistently in Chrome...[and] similar mechanisms in other browsers are currently either weaker or non-existent,' explained BSI," Keizer writes.
