Alternate Web Browsers
Monday, February 16, 2009
If an alternate web browser is safer than Internet Explorer, which one should you use?
The most popular is Mozilla Firefox, available for both PC and Mac. I use it on both platforms. Another option for PC and Mac is Opera, which tends to do better with IE-insistent sites. Windows users might want to explore Google Chrome (a version for Mac is in development). And Mac users can rely on Apple's default browser, Safari. Be sure to set the alternate browser as the default when asked. For more information on alternate browsers, please visit the Alternate Browser Alliance.
You can also install plug-ins to enhance your browser's capabilities. I'm fond of McAfee SiteAdvisor for security. You can find Firefox plug-ins on Mozilla's site.
