According to the report of NSS Labs, Internet Explorer outperformed other web browsers in protecting user from the socially-engineered malware attack, where IE 9 (beta) blocked 90% of the live threats and IE 8 blocked 80% of the live threats.
Although those numbers are very impressive, I found this report is pro-IE.
Firstly, the report tested IE 9 beta version, but it didn’t test any beta version of the other browsers,why?
Secondly, those web browsers use different security models to protect their users, right? A threat to a browser is not necessarily a threat to another browser.
I would like to hear your opinion on the IE 9 and the said security report.
