It’s been a while since the last browser test and when the latest versions from all vendors are already pretty fast, why not measure something useful instead?

Also, at least for now it’s Windows only, with Mac and Linux versions coming later.

Privacy Protection: Internet Explorer & Safari Leads The WayTime to switch or is it?

It’s been a while since the last NSS Labs report and as it turns out, instead of comparing malware block rates like they always do, the guys have decided to do something different: find out which browser has the best built in privacy protection.

As it turns out, Safari and Internet Explorer users are protected better than those of Chrome and Firefox (if we ignore 3rd party extensions and NSA) and here is why:
