Lets see if I can quite get my arms around this, the thesis being that social engineered phishing protection, which is the prime danger to only the most gullible, is the end all be all of browser protection to strive for.

And protecting and parching the browser against newly found security holes with speed and dispatch is not worth anything because we are
oooooooonly looking at phishing protection as the sole criteria.

But I bet you I can use only IE8 and find nearly every phishing site on the planet anyway. Get your malware, hot fresh malware, at the bargain price of free free free. All you have to do is just click this little link that pops up.

And here, silly me, I thought some common sense and skepticism was the better way. But after some though, I am moved to propose the ultimate in browser safety, a web browser that goes no where on the internet, blocks all incoming and outgoing internet connections, idiot proof protection through the marvels of complete censorship.
