Web browsers are growing very fast and widely used by many people, so the need to protect it and secure the data transmission is increased. The web browser threats need to be prevented with their solutions. Cryptography is an area of computer science that provides security for data transmission to make the data more accurate, accountability, authentication, and confidentiality. Encryption algorithm plays an important role in securing the information or data. Different encryption algorithm (symmetric, asymmetric) has been used to achieve the security of data. Yet, those algorithms consume many computing resources such as computation time, battery power and memory. This paper presents the web browser threats and solution for it to make the web browser more secure and shows the most compatible algorithm for the web browsers. At the end of this study, AES is found to be the best algorithm for web browser security as it offers highest encryption rate, smallest memory usage, and currently the most secure algorithm.
