Chrome most secured, IE second, Firefox third

According to a study conducted by Accuvant, Google Chrome ranks top for security, followed by Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.


Accuvant's conclusion:

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 antiexploitation 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.

To note, the study – while independently and objectively assessed, said Accuvant – was funded by Google.
