Just wondering what others have found to be a secure browser. I use IE8 and have improved its security, installed a different AV program (MSE), etc. but I wonder if I should switch to a different browser to get an extra bit of protection. Any thoughts are welcome.

Mozilla FireFox and Google Chrome are both good, secure, browsers in my opinion. I think Google Chrome also updates automatically, without you having to even do anything on your part, which is quite nice. Both of these browsers can also be customized with a variety of free add-ons and themes.

google chrome for the win...i love it.
and they just won that tournament where hackers try to break it (sandbox escape)and they could'nt.
(it was a certain thing they had to do (hack) i know a hacker could hack chrome just like ie or firefox)
so thats a plus
the person that hacked it would have won $20,000 and a laptop from google...pretty cocky bunch aye? 8 )

Both Firefox and Chrome browsers are secure. But I use Google Chrome for all the banking, PayPal and other sensitive work etc.

Google has challenged hackers in pwn2own 2011 to crack the Chorme browser with $20,000 and a Google CR48 notebook to win. It has stayed unhackable for past 2 years.
