Firefox Web Browser

What makes other browsers better than Internet Explorer at protecting you from spyware and other attacks? Well, it’s simple really – most other browsers don’t make it so easy to install malicious software on your system without you knowing about it. Internet Explorer makes it relatively trivial through two features called ActiveX and Active Scripting. These technologies were designed specifically for the purpose of giving Web sites more control over a user’s computer. Unfortunately, as we have seen with exploit after exploit – that’s not always a good thing. Our suggestion is that you download and use Firefox to browse the internet. It’s free and has many features that Internet Explorer does not.
