I was going to change to Firefox before, but at that time it would not let me download any updates---some problem. I assume that is fixed, so maybe I will try it again.
Oh, if you use Firefox as your default browser, do you still leave IE on your computer?

There's many things that IE is needed for, and some web sites won't render(display) properly with firefox. What I've done is this.
1. Left IE as default browser, when I double click on a link IE comes up, with some exceptions, see below.
2. Most web surfing is done using FireFox. If I find a site that won't render properly I switch to IE for that site.
3. I use Opera for sits I go to ofter. This site is via Opera as is my web mail when I'm on the company computer. One of the nice things about Opera is that when I'm in Opera and double click on a link here, it opens up in another Opera window.
It still a good idea to download and install all security updates from Microsoft. I have my computers set to do that automaticly. When I came into the office this morning an update happened last night while I was busy sleeping.
