In its first comprehensive test of web browser protection against socially engineered malware, NSS Labs found that Internet Explorer 8 (RC1) was best among the six browsers tested. More than 154,000 individual tests were run during 12 days of 24x7 testing against Apple Safari v3, Google Chrome 1.0.154, Microsoft Internet Explorer v8 (RC1), Microsoft Internet Explorer v7, Mozilla Firefox v3.07 and Opera 9.64. IE8’s catch rate was 69%, well ahead of the nearest browser in the test, which scored a 30% catch rate.
