    I'm pretty sure the sandboxing on tabs is the same as Chrome, but its flash isn't built-in like Chrome.

    Not sandboxing Flash is a biggie in my opinion.

    I think it's been controversial, but it has to be safer sandboxing Flash.

    I would certainly say it's safer, yes.

    The day browser makers invent browser that manages to protect user from itself, I will tell you which one is safe. Until then, this is all very much a matter of personal preference, there is no such thing as a safer browser, this is nothing but a marketing idea supported with some dubious tests

    @ fsr:

    it would be nice if you could back up your claims with some sources.

    otherwise, there isn't much to discuss...

    i like to see a browser run its subprocesses with a Low Integrity level.
    i don't feel safe using a browser that do not support this feature.

    out of the box, only IE and Chrome support that feature.
    i'd rather use a browser that has some sandboxing capability than a browser who has none.

    i spent a few hours a couple weeks ago trying to get deliberately infected with drive-by malware using Chrome.
    i could net get infected.

    this is not something i would want to try with a 'stock' Opera or Firefox.

    I've used Google Chrome, but it is not installed in Program Files folder making me confused. I'm using Comodo Dragon instead.

    Download Google Chrome using the second link in the page -http://www.google.com/support/installer/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=126299

    It will install to Program Files.

    Umm, no crap, Sherlock. However, Flash is very often exploited and anything to mitigate the risk, which the sandbox in Chrome does, is a good thing. I really don't get where this "there is no safer browser" comes from..sources please? Chrome and IE 9 are the safest browsers around, if one goes by the built-in mitigation they use. However, that does not mean they are foolproof. There is such a thing as safer software, but there is no such thing as 100% security. By the way, for the sake of keeping things OT, no, I do not use Chrome at the moment.

    lol

    Low integrity is basically the definition of protecting a user form themselves. IT assumes that the process will be successfully broken through and then attempts to restrict it.

    But pleeeeease argue with me.

    I can't really understand either and I don't like Microsoft at all.

    As for Google, it's probably some misinformation about non-existent privacy concerns.
