Another aspect pointed out by Avira’s Security Product Manager Sorin Mustaca is Google’s effort to keep their browser safe. “Especially when we are talking about the Chrome browser, we have the already famous hacking sessions, which Google organizes to find vulnerabilities in the browser. This shows how important the security is for Google,” Mustaca said.
“Google also invests a lot in the visible part of the security. The Safe Browsing functions in the browser prevent users to visit malicious websites.
If two years ago, when comparing Google with Firefox, Safari and IE, Google was not at the top, the situation has changed a lot today,” he added, referring to the browser’s improved malicious file filtering abilities thanks to Google’s investment in theSafe Browsing feature.
“When compared with Firefox and Safari, Google is better at detecting malicious software because it is using some private information regarding file reputation.
With the acquisition of Virus Total in 2012, Google has shown how interested is in improving this security feature in the browser. Expect Google to become better and better here on the medium-long term,” Avira’s Security Product Manager concluded.
