Try it and find out. They say IE is the best browser to prevent malware. But its the user (who doesnt know what theyre installing), not the browser that puts it there

You dont even have to have a web browser open to get malware on a computer - if you get hit by a "drive-by-download" it can infect, as long as you have a working internet connection.

security holes have been found in Safari(in Win), as well as all the others.
Its the idiot behind the keyboard who is usually the real security risk.

Click that that pop-up, & again....nearly there. One more click & pop-up will go away, promise :-)

Dunno, at the Hackers Convention, they won the $15000 by hacking it in a few seconds flat.

Yeah I saw that as well. It doesnt necessarily make IE more secure(??), just better at detecting bogus websites (???)

I dont like IE anyway (just a personal bias)

Safari is made by that horrible fruity company so I don't touch it. In the way of best browser I would say Chrome, because of its speed and add-ons, but Opera probably is the most secure.

I've used Firefox for years and never really had any issues.
I just make sure to scan my computer once a week to keep anything that does get in, under control.

I think as long as you do have up to date anti malware ect. there shouldn't be too much of a difference between the browsers. Comes down to personal preference then.
