What is better (more secure) Internet Explorer or Google Chrome?
chrome is faster, but internet explorer uses less ram and has the smart screen filter which in windows 8 with windows defender can detect a lot of malware, but both detect a lot.
...very impressed that Chrome blocked all in PhishTank site, while IE 11 has done for few sites.I do a lot of malware testing and some of those samples will lock up a browser. But when it locks up IE11, 9 out of 10 times all you have to do is hit the back button, or open a new tab, or just hit the close browser button to unlock it. On the other hand, using Firefox on the same samples, 9 out of 10 times the browser is locked so well the only way to release it is to restart the virtual machine.
I haven't used Chrome in testing malware so can't help there.
I've been impressed how many phishing sites IE11 will catch lately. Just go to one of the phishing sites like PhishTank.com and compare it with Firefox and Chrome.
