PC – SOS

An Internet Security Blog

Your Browser

Posted by Bob Zenith on July 28, 2010

Your browser can be one of the most important choices you make for your computer. There are several major web browsers out there:

    Internet Explorer
    Firefox
    Google Chrome
    Safari
    Opera

Internet Explorer comes default on all Windows computers, and cannot be uninstalled. This makes it a huge target for hackers and exploits, since most people use it. Stay away from this one.
Firefox is growing more popular each month. A free download at www.mozilla.org, it is a safer, more secure alternative to Internet Explorer.
Google Chrome is made by Google, (obviously), and although it’s fast, do you want Google spying on you everyday? I’d also advise you to stay away from this one.
Safari comes default on all Macintosh computers. Apple is becoming more popular each day and is giving Microsoft a run for it’s money. At one time Safari and Macs were “invulnerable” because they were so unpopular – this isn’t the case anymore. I wouldn’t choose this one either, because it bogs down your computer with useless stuff (like Apple always does), like “Apple Software Update” – and it stays on your computer even after you uninstall Safari.
Opera is a good choice because it is both revolutionary and not used by many. It’s sleek, fast, and overall AWESOME! Download it for free at opera.com

So, if you’re looking for a alternative to Internet Explorer, Firefox is your browser. Opera is a great choice too.
