Yesterday I was told by a computer support technician at a particular school district, that they were going to install Google Chrome on all the schools in their district. This was revealed to them this week, having to complete that task in all grade K through 12 before the first day of school this Monday. Although, Chrome has been received well among IT professional, NSS Labs tested IE 8 to be the most secure browser at this moment. Although, an article by Microsoft Watch revealed the NSS Labs test was founded my, Microsoft, surprised?
Even though IE 8 tested well, it won’t be long before malicious attackers will find more vulnerabilities on the browser. Moreover, while Google engineers can patch and improve their product rigorously, IE 8 won’t see an update to new found problems unless it’s the second Tuesday of each month.
