According to a report from the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, Web-based attacks such as malicious URLs, browser exploits, and compromised websites are the second-biggest threat facing Internet users. Web application attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting were the third most serious threat, says the same report.

As an employee or an employer, you no longer have a choice about whether or not to use the Web. That doesn't mean you don't have a choice about how you use it. Making Web browsing sessions as secure as possible is one sure way to limit your exposure to online attacks. Your choice of a Web browser is the single most important factor in safeguarding those sessions.

Which browser should you use? And why? Let this Deep Dive be your guide.
