Isn't everything in Chrome sandboxed? That would definitely make it hard as you would have to find an exploit that allows you to break out of that.

 

Why is Opera never taken on in this contest? It's my browser of choice and it always ranks high in security, but I'm sure it's not perfect.

I wish somone would have tried to exploit Chrome and Firefox allowing us to see what the best browser really is.

FireFox has been exploited serveral times, Chrome never has, as far as I have heard/read.

According to the site below, Firefox was attacked, it was never pwnd though. The only reason Chrome wasn't attacked is because the person who was going to take it on didn't show up.

Edit: I only skimmed the article though, so I may have missed something.
