Browsers fail password-management security tests

Google’s Chrome browser and Apple’s Safari have received poor marks in a new set of tests evaluating the security of password-management features in five popular Web browsers.Chapin Information Services (CIS), which published its test results last week, said Chrome 1.0’s password manager failed all but two of 21 tests–a score matched by Apple’s Safari 3.2. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 scored slightly better, passing five of the tests, while Opera 9.62 and Firefox 3.0.4 both passed seven of the tests.”Safari and Chrome are essentially tied for the worst password manager built into a major Web browser,” CIS said in a statement.
