Chrome Continues To Be The Most Secure Browser, but its weakness is its extensions. We recently learned that cryptocurency mining is executed through an extension and other similar vulnerabilities have seen the light. Who knows what else is going to happen.

Edge was hacked at will at Pawned 2017. Penentrate over and over again and should be avoided. Chrome unhackable in the time allotted.

In a Google backed event, Google Chrome still proves to be the most secure because it is the least exploited. Correlation <> Causation. ESPECIALLY when the "best" is a product of the one paying the bills.

I'm not saying that Chrome isn't the most secure, but such info as who's paying for the testing or whatever, can signal massaging of data, or less than full effort to fail or pass a product. (Sometimes with intentional passes or fails, regardless of data.)
 
I repair computers for a living and maybe in a controlled environment chrome is more secure, but it is the worse at pick up random junk and pup. Every time a computer is slow, 80% of the time it is chrome related (fake chrome browser, PUP addons, secret add on search and toolbar, infected registry keys.) The fact that flash is embedded in the browser and that it is compromised every few days is a malware magnet.
