If you had just said microsoft, you would have just been pegged as an apple fanboy. There would be elements of truth in the statement, but it's false in various other regards. But adding google in there just makes you look like an idiot.
IE is crap, and always had been. The only people using it are people who are too ignorant of computers to switch to Chrome or Firefox, or those locked in by corporate systems designed by idiots that insist on IE6 because it was designed to only work with IE6, which is possible because microsoft deliberately made it with somewhat different standards so that many webpages designed on and for IE6 would be incompatible with other browsers. Which was, of course, a move designed to leverage their market share into crushing other browsers. Bad corporate IT departments took the easy way out and went along with it, and as a result their networks are pretty damn insecure, since IE6 is notorious for being a security nightmare.
Google, on the other hand, makes good stuff. To claim that you're never going to achieve safety browsing the internet with something google makes is flat out wrong. I personally use firefox because I love being able to do all sorts of random shiat with my browser, but Chrome is certainly respectable.
But, with the PC comment, I suspect you are just an apple fanboy (or worse, a linux evangelist) with a tinfoil hat anti google thing going on. You were asked for a citation, and the best you could come up with was "because I said so". Not even a clarification as to how Microsoft or google products might be insecure. You've lost the argument. Even if you dig something up, bald assertions backed up with nothing other than your own nonexistant authority automatically loses a debate.
