On the Internet there are two main ways of getting a malware infection – links or attachment on emails, or from visiting fake, rogue, or compromised websites. So browser security has become an important consideration, perhaps the most important consideration, when deciding what browser to use.
Microsoft will be releasing Internet Explorer 10 with Windows 8 in the fall. IE 10 will be available for Windows 7 users by download. Several major changes in the browser will improve its overall security. Mozilla is releasing Firefox 10 soon, with a number of security enhancements onboard. And Google is releasing Chrome 20, and with it will be limiting plug-in downloads to its browser from the Google Play Store only. They have also kicked by the screening process for applications included in the web store to ensure that they do not contain malicious payloads or security flaws.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to stay up-to-date with the latest version of whatever browser is your preference.Share
