Cyber security passes above all through browsers, the main tool used by users to connect to the internet. And one of the most important tips that cybersecurity experts keep giving internet users is to keep browsers up to date.
The reason, as it is easy to guess, is quite simple: updates serve to correct errors and vulnerabilities. Bugs that, if discovered, could be exploited by hackers to compromise victims' devices. There are several browsers and not all of them offer the same level of security. Which to choose? Usually the users' decision falls on the most popular ones: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Safari. A small number of privacy-conscious people opt for Tor, a browser that promises to protect user data.
Chrome, an almost impenetrable browser
Let's go back to the original question. What is the safest browser? According to some hackers, Chrome would be impenetrable. Or rather, it would be more difficult to hack than Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox. This is what was discovered during the Pwn2Own, an international competition where hackers compete against who is best able to discover security holes in certain software. Including therefore also browsers. And which is the most vulnerable? Surprisingly, considering the premises with which it was created, the least secure browser turned out to be Microsoft Edge.
