I didn't and don't think the ratios were real world. A vulnerability doesn't mean anyone has exploited it.

But I do think Chrome is about as safe as OSX and most likely Chrome and Safari are roughly equivalent. I worry much more about corporate laxity. I use cash for almost every thing I can't deduct, never ceases to amaze me people will use a card to pay for something at the Dollar Store. I use paypal for websites of smaller companies I feel probably don't spend as much on security experts.

Details1 lists just 55 vulnerabilities for Chrome OS. Compare that to 1,111 vulnerabilities for Windows 10, and a whopping 2,212 for Mac’s OS X; with five percent as many vulnerabilities as its closest competitor, it’s a pretty simple matter to declare Chromebook the safest option.

Like I said I may buy another Mac, particularly if my plans work out when I sell my home. But it'll be an iMac, not a portable. and it'll have OSX on it, I don't like screwing around with OS's. OSX is still better than the alternatives running software.

I'm just going to buy the Chrome book to surf the web, get emails, check my bank account with an up to date browser. I'd never do that with Windows... they are just lazy jerks over there in Redmond. Why they haven't improved their OS is beyond me.
