I’ve installed all three of the latest browsers and will try them side-by-side for a while. Of course, the first thing one notices is that only IE9 has the Tracking Protection List feature. I’m working on a blog post on that feature specifically, but all I can say is that unlike Firefox and Chrome this capability is built-in to IE9. Yes, I can get add-ons for the other two to get similar protection. But I do like it built-in. BTW, I’m using the Easyprivacy TPL to eliminate (or at least reduce) tracking of my activities on the web.
I did get a phishing email today and decided to see how each browser handled the link it contained. Firefox and Chrome let me go to the bogus link without warning (not a surprise since they both allow it since they both use the same Google service for identifying phishing sites). IE9′s Smartscreen filter blocks access to the site with a warning that it has been reported to Microsoft as being a phishing site. I reported the site to Google and will check back in a day or so to see if Chrome and Firefox are blocking it yet.
