Google Chrome Named ‘Most Dangerous’ Browser of 2022
From January 1 to October 5, Google Chrome encountered some 303 vulnerabilities, which is the highest among many leading browsers.
In a recent survey conducted by Atlas VPN, Google Chrome was found to be the most dangerous internet browser of 2022. The list was followed by other big names including Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari.
The numbers mentioned in this report come from the Vulnerability Database (VulDB). This database basically collected data from January 1 to October 5. During this period, he noticed that Google Chrome encountered 303 vulnerabilities over a 10-month period. These numbers were startling and put Google Chrome at the top of the list of the most dangerous browsers of 2022.
Some of the most popular web browsers such as Apple, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and many more are included in this list. But as we know that security is a lost treasure in today’s world, trusting any browser with your personal data will be nothing short of wearing a blindfold.
Mozilla Firefox is not even safe now as it sits at number 2 on the list if the web browser is not safe due to the detection of 117 vulnerabilities. Not only that, but Microsoft Edge will soon join the list in having 103 security issues in 2022. Microsoft Edge is also affected by a total sum of 806 vulnerabilities and an increased percentage of 62% since last year 2021.
Apple Safari, another top web browser, was quite safe so far as only 26 vulnerabilities were detected, it still remains the web server with the least vulnerabilities among others. However, in the entire lifespan of Apple Safari, a total of 1139 vulnerabilities have been recorded, which should not be ignored in terms of security.
The Opera browser, which has found a large following over the past few years, has proven to be the most secure to date.
Even after having 344 vulnerabilities in a total course, Opera Safari still remained the safest. Not even a single vulnerability was noted this year for the Opera browser.
Since Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Opera browsers are all based on the same Chromium engine, vulnerabilities found in Google Chrome may affect them as well.
