After having consistent problems with IE7 and IE8 and troubleshooted till it became boring I chose Google Chrome as my default browser. When I scan with Superantispyware my level of cookies is over 100 whereas with IE it used to be not in double figures. Usual sites visited. Is IE more secure? Any thoughts?

Cookies are not really anything worth worrying about, they can't infect your machine and as far as I'm aware every site uses them to some degree or another, this site would use them to store your log-in information for example.

As for security, I've no idea if Chrome is any better or less secure than IE7/8, I would guess that the less used browsers may be more secure than the most popular ones if only because of that very reason. I guess IE and Firefox may be targeted more by malicious coders because of their popularity.
