Opera Responds to NSS Labs Browser Security Research Report

Opera Responds to NSS Labs Browser Security Research ReportThomas Ford, the PR Manager of Opera Software has also raised some concerns about the recent NSS Labs Report results (where Opera scored 0%) and responded with the following statement (as from ConceivablyTech email).

Google Responds to NSS Labs Browser Security Research Report

Google Responds to NSS Labs Browser Security Research ReportWith the recent release of NSS Labs Security Research Report, Google has responded with the following statement:

Additionally, the testing methodology isn’t available in a way that can be independently verified. Google Chrome was built with security in mind from the beginning and emphasizes protection of users from drive-by downloads and plug-in vulnerabilities — for example, we recently introduced a new security sandbox for Flash Player.

As a reminder: Google Chrome 6 blocked 3.4% of all socially engineered malware, while IE9 – 99%.

Firefox to Include Do Not Track FeatureFollows Internet Explorer.

Mozilla’s chief executive, Gary Kovacs while talking about Firefox 4 in Mountain View, California addressed user privacy issues and promised to deliver “Do Not Track” button in the first part of next year.

“The idea of ‘Do Not Track’ is interesting, but there doesn’t seem to be consensus on what ‘tracking’ really means, nor how new proposals could be implemented in a way that respects people’s current privacy controls,” said Google.

The Federal Trade Commission has also suggested adding such mechanism back in December.
