  1. Here's another article with a bit more balanced coverage. The thing to retain is nothing is 100% secure, don't let a sandbox lull you into a sense of invulnerability, in the end it still falls onto the user to surf wisely.

    I'll second Nic's vote of confidence about "nothing" and "100% security".

    And just last week, didn't I see IE 10-11 was The Most Vulnerable because of its built-in Flash module. Wait - I thought JavaRunTime ruined all of those. Wait... I think the shark's in the pond-!!

    Or is it... "Watery tarts lyin' in ponds, distributin' swords is no basis for..."?

    Nope, nothing is totally secure, but I'll still choose a slightly more secure browse over a slightly less secure browser.

  4. It's not about the car, it's how you drive it. Take the safest car in the world and crash it into a stone wall, see what happens. Take the most secure web browser into the darkest caves of the internet. Same result. Don't you love analogy.
    I am not responsible, and it's been proven over and over again.

    I liked this one. As a matter of fact, in this winter my expensive car rolled back on a downhill over black-ice plates without proper control and banged the pole one the back. Anyway, I got it fixed.

    I also supports anti-piracy and that is why I am out of Windows. I already paid proper price when ever necessary.
    As far as I know, my kernel is hacked, my browser is hacked, plus softwares I use have back-doors.
    Plus, my email id (is hacked) belongs to someone who is highly interested me.
    And, I AM STILL HERE ON VH. The deal is WiN-WiN here, coz I am getting what I want (FuN), and they are also getting what they want.

    When some one talk to me about Internet Security and Communications, I reply "you must be joking!"

  6. On top that I do not have any anti-virus and firewalls. I found almost 164 infections, last time when I scan KiD's Game PC where buch of community kids play games. I really can not think about mine.

  7. Couples of Questions, after re-reading

    1) Which is the most secure web browser? as title of thread says "firefox is the least secure browser..."
    I think that we should use a reliable antivirus and firewall with every browser....
    2) Which is the most reliable (100% full-proof) anti-virus?

    1) I use Chrome and Firefox and nothing else. Both have probably long ago patched the Pwn2Own exploits (this thread is almost a month old). For various reasons, and I admit that some of them are good ones, Microsoft is the slowest to patch horrible day zero exploits in IE and Apple is only marginally better with patching Safari exploits. I have no information on other browsers and how good or bad they are.
    2) There isn't a 100% fool-proof anti-virus. All of them miss some things they shouldn't miss and have false positives on things that are OK. Even the expensive commercial ones act this way. I used to use the free AVG but they made it so incredibly difficult to get the free version that I decided to go with Avast instead. All the anti-virus products miss different things and find different false positives. All you can do is pick one and hope for the best. Not going to suspicious websites is a good start.
