    "Opera isn't bad, not bad at all. Though I personally have a limited experience with it. That being said none of my experiences were sour, so I'd say give it a go."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that email is the most used delivery vehicle for most phishing and malware attacks? According to Symantec in their 2017 Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR), the highest rate that happened within 5 years was in 2016, in which out of 131 emails, 1 is contained of malware. The most popular tactic is the delivery through email of fake invoices with malicious attachments, tricking people to open phishing emails. Verizon's 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report also shows that two-thirds of the malware come from email attachments. In addition, a Wombat Security State of the Phish 2017 report shows that 76% of organizations were victims of phishing attacks.

    Meanwhile, research shows that up-to-date modern browsers can guard you against phishing and malware attacks. This is because modern browsers such as Google Chrome features a Safe Browsing technology that notifies you when you visit a malicious web page. This pre-check technology works by doing a quick check based on the list of suspected phishing and malware web pages. There is a list kept locally on your computer to guard your browsing privacy. If there is a match between the local list and the web page you visit, Google will show a red warning page to let you know that the web page is possibly not safe to visit. This suggests that the browser lets you decide if you still wish to visit the web page after being alerted of possible malware attacks.

      "My grandparents are getting older but are still interested in keeping up with technology. They love to use their tablets and are always looking for the best browsers for their Ipads. I told them to give the Puffin Web Browser a shot. They took my advice and have been extremely pleased with the browser. They love how fast the browser is and how easy and convenient it is to use."
