Report: IE 7 Has the Best Anti-Phishing Filter

Internet News:
According to a new study published by technical services firm 3Sharp, security features in Microsoft's IE 7 lead a pack of anti-phishing utilities from Netcraft, Google, eBay and Geotrust.

The study gave top marks to IE 7, which was tested at its beta 3 level and was closely followed by Netcraft.

The report noted that IE beat out Netcraft due to IE's, "ability to anticipate phish," or sites the trick people into coughing up personal information. Google's Safe Browsing anti-phishing tool running on Firefox came in a distant third.
