For this key source of malware – Socially Engineered Malware, Internet Explorer remains at the very top, as it has been for some time, Chrome is a pretty good third place, and Firefox and Safari are, as they have been for several years, at the very bottom. Our recommendations for browser use are unchanged: use the most secure browser available on your platform, keep your operating system up to date, and use Norton Internet Security.

(Note: at this point we do not have enough information about the two new Chinese browsers to make a recommendation regarding them one way or another)
