How safe is this browser surfing the net? Safe like Chrome and Firefox?

No browser is safe to surf on, if you do not have adequate security running along side it, and apply common sense. Adding to what Darth said above, you should look at additional realtime security such as Kaspersky or ESET NOD32 (my recommedations) and Malwarebytes pro which will not conflict with those two (or many other popular vendor security packages).
