      horses, worms, bugs,hijacks, etc..     

At one time I thought I was 100% country girl...................I can't take any more critters!!!!

I have now installed FIREFOX.

Can someone please explain to me, why Firefox is horse, bug, worm and etc free?

Is it just a matter time before this changes?

No program is perfect. People attempting to hack computers are going exploit software with a 95% market share, not the 5% of computer users who are educated enough to not use what everyone else is using.

There probably are exploits in Firefox, but usually when people find a bug in open source software, they write the patch for it instead of a virus.

      help in converting the masses     

Here's a website where people evangelize on the merrits of other browsers.

http://browsehappy.com/browsers/

Of course, some of these people aren't very bright so use their testimonies at your own risk.



Ms. Sandlin is so devoted to [Firefox] that she has taped a note to her monitor warning guests not to click on the desktop shortcut to Internet Explorer. Do not touch the blue ‘E!’ the note says.




I guess Ms. Sandlin hasn't figured out she can drag that blue E to the recycle bin.

      also     

Make sure you have the latest virus/spyware software installed and keep it upto date, I.E. atleast once a week. There are several free programs (i reccomend AVG, AD-Aware and Spybot these combined are great). 9/10 they will be better than the shitty norton programs that most idiots pay for.
