Web browsing is a wonderful way to useful site access information and knowledge from all over the world, but it also serves as a gateway for malicious attackers. The attackers target the browser to track data sent through it (such as when users type in personal details in forms) or exploit flaws in the browser itself to gain access to the device it’s running on, the files on that device and the information in its memory.
A secure browser is designed to protect users from these kinds of attacks while offering users an excellent experience. A secure browser will display a green lock on the URL bar and display warnings if you browse on sites which don’t have HTTPS.
It is important to select the right browser with security features and also one that allows users to install add-ons and plug-ins that are vetted. These third-party programs can be an infection source and slow down the speed of the browser. They could also introduce other security issues into the system.
Finally, a secure browser should have a speedy performance that does not compromise functionality. Ideally, the top browsers are easy to navigate and don’t lag. This is particularly important for organizations that need their employees to work from home or other remote locations, and students who require the ability to study from any location with an internet connection.
