New to the Mac world (iMac 27", 2TB Fusion, etc) after being tied to a Window environment for work purposes. I have always heard that Macs are more secure than Windows. Why is that? I have read the marketing materials and know of Gatekeeper, FileVault, Sandboxing, etc. But what really drives Macs to be safer? And does using Safari vs say Chrome as a browser make it any more safe? A side question. I have been using a Chromebook for my portable device. How does OS X and the Mac environment compare for security purposes? Thanks.
