Use Firefox

I've said it before, if you're still using Internet Explorer to boogie around the Internet, you're opening your system up for trouble. Read why here.

Download Firefox here. Do it already! It's easy. It's better.

Very nice, I just downloaded Firefox. I'll have to play around with it since I normally am able to bring my "favorite" page up to my left side. I don't have that right now but I'm sure it's easy enough. Don't stay updated enough with the latest thing out there so it's nice to read it here.

A plug in for FF that will HEAVILY improve your security as well is . It lets you customize what domains you allow to run javascript which means greatly improved security.

If you are paranoid like I am and don't trust links in comments go to addons.mozilla.org and in the top 5 downloads will be NoScript.

As a side note after you install NoScript it will take a couple of days to notice which sites you visit that are broken without javascript but it's super easy to enable sites either temporarily (just for that visit) or permenantly.

Kman,

I use the NoScript plug-in. It can annoy at times, but they're great.
