LXer: Study finds Firefox 2.0 better placed in detecting phishing attacks

Published at LXer:

A study commissioned by Mozilla Foundation claims that the anti-phishing filter in Mozilla's Firebox 2.0 browser has outclassed similar tools available in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7. The study found that Firefox 2.0, which is said to be a more secured version than the earlier browsers, had blocked 81.5 per cent of all phishing websites, while IE7 prevented 66.35 per cent of the phishing operations.
