On September 19, the team of cure53, a German network security company, and the famous x41 d-sec GmbH (hereinafter referred to as x41) released a white paper on browser security, in which x41 compared the three major web browsers Google Chrome, Microsoft edge and Internet Explorer, providing a very detailed security research report.

X41: Browser Security white paper

We collect, analyze and summarize all the potential information related to browser security. In order to help some IT managers and security experts make wise decisions, select browsers that are more suitable for their specific needs, and resist the risks they face to the greatest extent.

We looked at the three most used browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer, edge and Google Chrome, and spent a lot of time studying all the security functions that modern web browsers can achieve, and analyzed many of their functions for potential security risks.

We found that modern browsers have more built-in security technology, but also more "attack surface". Regularly introduce and implement new security technologies and web functions, and add more codes that can alleviate security problems or introduce security vulnerabilities.

We also found that Microsoft edge and Google Chrome have the most advanced security, while Microsoft Internet Explorer lags behind them. In our opinion, Google Chrome is more secure as a whole, but it is recommended that you check the data and make your own decision. The best choice depends on your personal needs and specific risks.
