No more epilepsy...

Well, the last update to Firefox trashed my ad blocker, then I just got some updates from Firefox.

As well as a new ad blocker on the plug-ins page.

The new version with the new ad blocker has so far blocked all of those annoying little popups.

Get Firefox here: Firefox - Rediscover the Web

And then once you install it, it will open the ad-ons page, pick the one for Adblock Plus and then pick the US version after it installs. Very, very slick.

I still trust the ssl in IE when I'm concerned about security, but for generic browsing, Firefox is my new best friend.

Caveat: If you're at work, check with your IT group before you install it, there are some potential security issues and I wouldn't want youse getting in trouble.

^^^^

Why is it superior to IE and what are the problems you have with IE?

I know I am a 'puter non-starter, but I never understand why folks have these prejudices.

I use Firefox. Firefox is more internally coded with virus and spam protection. I still have firewalls outside of Firefox, but after my Dell warranty expired on me back in November, I got Firefox.
