Accuvant recently did a study comparing the security of IE, Chrome, and Firefox. Safari was not included in this study. Is there a security study that compares the 4 browsers - IE, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari?

In my humble opinion it's not the security of one browser versus another. It is the person utilizing the browser and them using safe browsing practices.

As Animal said, it's not really the core browser being more secure but the person that uses it. If you take time to install TRUSTED addons, avoid scam/spam sites, and just use good browsing habits then all will come out about the same.

Having said that, I think the extensions (Ad block+, NoScript, etc.) make firefox the most secure browser. Chrome is starting to catch up though.
