The most dangerous and the most secure browser


For many people, the Internet has already becomean integral part of life: this is the source of information needed every day, and a means of communication with friends and acquaintances, and an indispensable tool for work. Everyone searches the global network for what he needs, but all of this requires browsers. I want to use the most secure browser, of course. But which one is worthy of this high rank?

Browsers "grow", evolve - becomemore reliable, easier and more convenient to use, work faster. At the same time, they transmit certain information to the developers' servers, perhaps, necessary to improve the program, and maybe too superfluous and simply personal, not intended for prying eyes. Therefore, the most secure browser should not only be the least vulnerable, but also spy on the user as little as possible.

Internet Explorer is one of the least vulnerablebrowsers. But even during the installation phase, it sends information about its use to the server of the corporation, and then - data about how many times the program is started. And that's nothing, but also the creators of IE are interested in information about the processor, hard disk and computer RAM, program expansion, and also encrypted code for PC identification. And even if you know that the browser has this "statistic function" enabled by default, you can not disable it.

The most secure browser
Google Chrome is a browser that does not lag behind andinforms its creators about many things. He is "interested in" the addresses of web pages, the version number of the browser, requests for searching, not found addresses, as well as the version of DirectX and the Windows operating system installed on the PC, and other Google programs on it, and his servers can store IP addresses users. In other words, everything is available to the company, starting with the private information on the VKontakte page and ending with the Internet banking data. This is hardly the most secure browser. He "calls home" all the time, and you can only switch off the transfer of personal data in part.

Mozilla Firefox also broadcasts informationdevelopers, but in small numbers. When this program crashes, it collects the necessary information about the problem for the company and compiles a Crash Report, which lists the website that the crash was associated with, and a number that allows you to identify the computer. Crash Report describes the hardware of the PC, and also reports on which version of Windows it is installed on. All this does not happen "behind the back" of the user, but on the contrary: that the Crash Report created by the program went to the developers, you need to express your consent by clicking the mouse button, and you can refuse and do not send it. You can also view it before sending it, although its content is understandable and useful only for an experienced user. So this is probably the most secure browser in terms of the preservation of personal data. On the other hand, from the point of view of vulnerability, it is one of the most "leaky".

Of course, even a secure browser can not completely protect your computer from viruses, attacks and all sorts of unwanted injections: only the reliable and uninterrupted antivirus saves them from them.
