The team behind Google's Chrome browser received a high accolade recently, after the German government named Chrome as the most secure web browser.
The announcement came in the form of a best security practices guideline from Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), and it emphasized how Chrome was the best browser around today so far as security standards are concerned.
The BSI particularly praised Chrome's anti-exploit sandbox technology - the feature which alienates the browser from the rest of the operating system, thus preventing any malicious web based elements from infecting other crucial components of the host OS.
In addition, the silent update mechanism as well as the built in Adobe Flash components were also termed by the BSI as rather impressive for ensuring online security for users.
