All browsers have flaws and you are free to make your choices, but Chrome and IE are the strongest.
as interesting a point as it is concerning.
the real problem is the fluidity of the situation, this week Chrome is the best, next week IE, the week after Firefox... are users really supposed to juggle browsers and allot an amount of time each week at tracking which browser is safer?
regarding FireFox it's the add on's that lock it down in ways that neither Chrome or IE offer that sells it for me.
as for human bug vs hacker exploit, it doesn't really matter if the results are the same.... a hacked system especially in the example I cited where it's 1 click away from infection is unacceptable.
Apple fans like to say they are immune but last I heard Apple is 10 years behind everyone else and has only been sheltered because their PC footprint is still stuck around 10%.
