Battle of the browsers

Regardless of whether you're attached to Firefox, addicted to Chrome, or hooked on Internet Explorer, browser security is all about updates. Here's why you should make sure you're not clinging to an old version of any browser.

A new study has tossed the big browsers into the security mosh pit and decreed that Google's Chrome comes in first, Microsoft's Internet Explorer pulls in at a close second, and Mozilla Firefox is bleeding a bit like a stuck pig.

The study, released Friday by Accuvant Labs,  found that Firefox has four "unimplemented or ineffective" security services: sandboxing, plug-in security, IT hardening and URL blacklisting (the last of which all three browsers flunked).
