    NSS Labs tested all the popular web browsers for how well they block malware and IE9 beat out all of them.

    Article and test results at the source.

    I thought it was known for some time that the safest way to browse the internet these days was with a standard user account on win 7 x64 and IE8 or 9 :)

    That setup blocks 90-95% of malware and an antivirus/hids will handle the rest.

    I would still rather use tinfoil and shrink wrap before I use IE.

    funny, for the longest while I wouldn't use anything BUT ie, but once I got used to chrome it seems I don't want to switch back even though I know I'd like it better

    which proves the point I have always made, we all think the browser we are using is better then the other browsers no matter what anyone says

    I am going to go back to ie as soon as possible, thanks for the post
