  • I use Firefox. Overall, it is safer than Internet Explorer if you enable all the features available.

  • Firefox...haven't used IE in a good few years. I switched over to firefox because IE just gave me too many pop ups that I was unable to control via settings. With firefox had no issues really.

  • I am on a mac and I like Safari but that's a Mac thing. I don't like and won't use IE if I can, I don't like really anything Microsoft. If you are using a windows machine, I'd recommend Firefox. I hear lots of good things about it for both Mac and Pc. I just like Safari best for mac.

  • Firefox- IE sucks, it crashes all the time, and some sites will even tell it it runs better with firefox. I also use firefox, because I can have add ons for blogging (scribefire), blocking ads (ad blocker plus), and blocking unwanted scripts (no script). Scribefire is nice with one click I can immediately blog and w/ second click it will publish it on my blog. Ad blocker is nice because it blocks ads and keeps sites like CM ad free for my viewing pleasure! No script also blocks un wanted or untrusted scripts. CM for example has 8 scripts that want to run, but truly you only need 3 of them for CM to properly function. It's amazing what's in the background. It's the stuff in the background that causes issues.

  • I'm running FireFox on my Linux units and my PC's. Fir fox seems to be safer and with AdBlock Plus and other features added on, you can't beat it. My Laptop is running Linux and Firefox and I don't even use virus/security software since most, if not all those things attack Microsoft/Windows operating systems. Besides ITS FREE!
