The answer may be surprising to some, but according to leading security firm NSS Labs, there’s a new champ in town.

IE 10 blocked a whopping 99.96% of the infested sites followed by Chrome at 83.16% (respectable), Safari at 10.15%, Firefox at 9.92% and Opera pulling up the rear at a measly 1.87% effective rate.
