Google Chrome offers more protection against online attacks than any other mainstream browser, according to an evaluation that compares exploit mitigations, malicious link detection, and other safety features offered in Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.

The 102-page report, prepared by researchers from security firm Accuvant, started with the premise that buffer overflow bugs and other security vulnerabilities were inevitable in any complex piece of software. Rather than relying on metrics such as the number of flaws fixed or the amount of time it took to release updates, the authors examined the practical effect protections included by default in each browser had on a wide class of exploits.

It seems the main factor in ranking this 3-browser race is the presence or absence of a JavaScript sandbox approach. "Firefox came in last because it didn't implement a sandbox yet."

Also noted, "The report was commissioned by Google, but the authors insist they had complete autonomy in deciding what metrics to use and what conclusions they made."
