Google Chrome: More Secure than Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer?

Earlier on today we reported that hackers had managed to exploit Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox at Pwn2Own 2010, however we have not yet heard of any confirmed exploits for Google Chrome.

This was also the case last year, hackers are still reporting that Chrome’s bugs are very hard to exploit, apparently this is due to a ‘sandbox model’ which is very hard to get out of.

According to DownloadSquad’s recent article Safari was the the first web browser to be exploited at Pwn2Own 2010, closely followed by Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox.

Still the most hype at the contest is the Apple iPhone exploit, this is apparently more than capable of downloading an iPhone’s entire SMS database just by an iPhone user visiting a certain website.

Despite all of these exploits showing the vulnerabilities of web browsers, they are infact more than welcomed by Apple, Microsoft, Google and Mozilla etc, mainly because by showcasing exploits it allows developers to patch up these vulnerabilities before they become widely used.

Will this news convince you to use Google’s Chrome web browser?
