On March 31, 2014, NSS Labs published a report "BROWSER SECURITY COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS: Socially Engineered Malware Blocking" (see link below). This report concluded that IE version 11 was superior for malware blocking as compared to Firefox (v27), Chrome (v33), Opera (v19), Safari (5.1.7), etc. My questions about this report are:
(1) How valid are the conclusions?
(2) How valid was the testing regimen?
(3) How meaningful are the results?
(4) Given the report's conclusions, should we switch to using IE rather than other browsers?
(5) Other comments?
