On another posting on this sight some one recommends using Firefox as an alternative browser. I now use Internet Explorer and Google. So would there be any advantage if I download Firefox and then use it.

try it , if you do not like it uninstall it, but when you do you will wonder why you did not try long ago.
Its in my opinion a safer and faster altrnative to Explorer.....

That`s good enough for me. I will give it a try. Thanks all.

Yes, Firefox is a super browser and a safer one as it doesn't allow ActiveX scripts to run. There is a school of thought that says if you're careful about your surfing and use Firefox, you can dispense with the services of AV and anti-Trojan etc software - not something I'd recommend to someone preferring to run IE.

It's up to the individual, but i personally use Firefox as my main browser now. I use IE when i'm selling something on eBay, as the descriptions are easier to write using IE.

Bad school of thought, while Firefox will suffer much less from the depredations of the Spy/Malware writers, it offers no real protection from mail worms and trojans. Do not neglect your Anti Virus protection.

It`s very good, it beats IE hands down in my opinion.
