Internet Explorer Microsoft has unveiled a website aimed at raising awareness of browser security by comparing the ability of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome to withstand attacks from malware, phishing, and other types of threats. Your Browser Matters gives the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome a paltry 2 and 2.5 points respectively out of a possible score of 4. Visit the site using the IE 9, however, and the browser gets a perfect score. IE 7 gets only 1 point, and IE 6 receives no points at all. The site refused to rate Apple's Safari browser in tests run by The Register.

I visited the site using Opera 12 on Linux. This is what I got:
"We can't give you a score for your browser."
Does that mean that I am in danger? Should I keep surfing the web using the current configuration? Or maybe I should install Windows and use Internet Explorer?
Man, what a dilemma!
