    I have use both WhiteHat and Comodo. I don't like WhiteHate because just like Norton things attach to it Where as Comodo it is a hardy down earth Virus Protector as well as a browser. I was using WhiteHate and had so many intrusions form Chrome, Opera, IE and FireFox, but with Comodo i had maybe two form each and Yes Comodo has Ad blocker by default and blocks Tracking by default it also stops auto play stops Third party cookies and Comodo dose have in private browsing. WhiteHate on the other hand does not have a virus scanner attached to it like Comodo dose you can actually set the Comodo browser to scan all incoming trafic as well as out going WhiteHat you cannot. It is everyone's preference on what they use as a browser but I think i will stick with Comodo.

    some browsers support extensions, many of which fulfill the functions you mark as not being included. This, I think, gives a skewed impression as to how fucntional or well-secured they are.

      Actually, most browsers support some type of extensions and attackers have gone from targeting the browser itself to attacking the extension systems and the extensions themselves since they tend to be easier targets.

      I'll have to look them up again, but there have been "security extensions" for IE, Chrome and Firefox that have done more to subvert the browser than protect it. This was not intentional in most cases, just a matter of poor design decisions or coding choices made by the programmer/developer.

    The list shows that WhiteHat Aviator blocks all certain vulnerabilities by default.

    Can the other two browsers:
    Block the same vulnerabilities if "told" to do so?
    Do a better job of blocking the same vulnerabilities?
    Block vulnerabilities that WhiteHat Aviator does not block?

    On security, I use Chrome specially for banking transactions. For privacy, Firefox. I use an addon on firefox to enhance its security, the Bluhell Firewall.

    Shouldn't TOR Browser be mentioned as one that's built for privacy?

    Does this infographic show statistics for browsers on all O/Ss or, as is more usual, just for Windows?

      "WhiteHat Aviator; is built on Chromium, the same open-source foundation used by Google Chrome. "
      "Our default search engine is Disconnect – not Google, which logs your activity. For good measure, Aviator integrates Disconnect – a crucial extension that blocks advertisements and much of the privacy-destroying tracking used across the Internet."
      So, get Chromium, set serch engine to Disconnect and install Disconnect.

      Whitehat Aviator is based on Chrome and the latest version is 37.0.2062.99 (2.5) while Chrome is 39.0.2171.99. So, why use an outdated browser?
