It is just as secure as Firefox. Though if you want to be secure, the site has to have a secure session with you (https://)

As long as you are updated to the newest version of your web browser, you should be fine.  And make sure you keep constant check if there are updates that need to be taken care of.  The updates only improve your browsing experience after all!

It is as secure as many of the browsers out there, just as with Operating Systems the size of the userbase dictates how popular a target it is.

Internet Explorer and Firefox are for that reason the most targeted for exploits followed by Chrome.

On Windows I Use Internet Explorer 9 And Mozilla V.6.0,on My Mac I Use Safari And Mozilla V.6.0

I Think The Most Secure Browser In Nowadays Are Internet Explorer 9 And Mozilla

You can put plugins like adblock or disable "open safe files after downloading" for more secure
