Firefox link is back

December 26, 2004

If you scroll down a bit, you’ll notice the brightly-colored Firefox logo to the right, just below the “Most recent entries.”  Firefox is a free, next-generation web browser from the Open-Source people at the Mozilla Foundation.  It is a well-designed, easy-to-use application and about as secure as can be expected for a web browser.  (Internet Explorer is famous for NOT being secure.)  Firefox also has some really cool productivity features (just click on the link to read about them) and I recommend it for everyone!

You won’t have to remove Internet Explorer to install Firefox – they get along well.  (In fact, unless you’re a real expert, you can’t remove IE.)  Besides, you’ll need IE for a few sites that absolutely require it, including Microsoft’s system update website.  But for everything else, I recommend you use Firefox.

No browser is bulletproof, by the way. You still have to exercise good sense in your web browsing.  But at least using a more advanced browser gives you a fighting chance against the bad guys.  And it has some really handy features, too.
