IE9 ranks best in malware-blocking

According to the latest report fresh out of NSS Labs, Redmond’s Internet Explorer 9 is king of the hill in terms of security.

 

The insecurity outfit found that IE9 managed to block 92 percent of malware with URL-based filtering and a whopping 100 percent with application-based filtering. The previous version, IE8 ranked second with a 90 percent blockage rate.
