    I admit Google Chrome is the best browser available. However Internet Explorer is the safest browser. To avoid malicious threat from internet, experts recommend to use Internet Explorer. You might have noticed that the page loading speed in Internet Explorer will be slow. It is because tiny security patches will be running in the background to avoid malicious threat. So if you are most concerned about security try switching to Internet Explorer. Computer gets infected due to accessing some inappropriate websites. Some websites were designed to transmit malicious content. So open only trusted websites. It is better to have an AntiVirus that supports internet security. Internet security will show you only healthy website and avoid opening bad websites.

    No matter what precautions you take, you'll be subjected to attacks one day if you don't have a sophisticated anti virus and a Firewall to protect your system. I think browser doesn't need any particular safety precautions.

    But you should take care while downloading free software and games that comes loaded with malware and adware. Some software installs extensions that run on background and tracks your browsing behavior. Also, please check carefully the TERMS before installing any software or extension.

    Try checking for updates every month because new updates remove the threats and loopholes every time to give you better performance. Keep using Chrome because it's the only browser that offers high performance and frequent updates.

Internet explorer has some good features such as sandbox browsing and security restrictions. However most of the features makes it harder not to have security issues.
