Web browsing is an excellent way to gain access to information and know-how from around the world, but it can also be an entry point for malicious attackers. Attackers are able to target browsers in order to snoop the information that is transmitted through it (such as when people enter personal information into forms) or exploit vulnerabilities in the browser to gain access to files, devices as well as data stored in memory.

A secure browser is built to protect users from these kinds of attacks, while providing users with secure web browsing a great experience. To ensure that a browser is secure it should have an orange padlock in its URL bar and display warnings when visiting sites that do not utilize HTTPS.

It is essential to select an internet browser that is secure as well as one that allows users to install add-ons and plug-ins that are vetted. Not only could these third-party programs be a potential source of malware, but they may slow down a browser or introduce additional points of failure to the system.

In the end, a secure browser should offer a fast performance that doesn’t compromise functionality. The ideal browsers are easy to navigate and do not slow down. This is especially important for companies that require their employees to work from home or other remote places, as well as students who require the ability to study anyplace with internet access.
