I liked the IE browser, don't get me wrong...but it isn't safe. Maybe the EVIL ONES put more crap out on that browser. I dunno.
Since I switched to FF and McAfee Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware...I've never had a single solitary problem!
It was actually one of our members who told me that A) Norton doesn't work...and, B) IE is the most dangerous browser to use.
He uses LINUX OS, but he is a techie kind of guy. He recommended I use FF and McAfee. I switched and never looked back!
So I use FF for safety...and it works just great. McAfee is wonderful, too.
