Yes, of course its a matter of personal preference. I've read that article on Firefox myths. All I can say is that for every 'fact' I can find on the internet, I can find a dozen 'facts' refuting the same statements. I can write an article that sounds very convincing, stating lots of unconfirmed 'facts', post it on Tips4Pc.com , and no doubt get my statements quoted in some other forum in a similar discussion. That doesn't mean I am wrong or right.. it just means I managed to convince someone of such. I am not saying the article you have quoted is wrong or right either.. but I will say there is a huge amount of (equally unsupported) information which totally 'proves' that Firefox can even cook your breakfast for you if you install the right addons. The internet is a huge library of information, but there is no-one checking the validity of the information.. take everything you read with a certain degree of caution, and seek many opinions. Then form your own and run with it!I am very anti-IE, but its very well known for major security holes (even Microsoft admits it) , and it just happens to be the biggest and easiest target for people who write malware. My recommendation is to try all of the browsers and see which one suits your own tastes best. We've had this discussion before, and I know you prefer Opera. After our last discussion, I installed Opera once again to see how much it may have changed. I do like to keep an open mind! I still don't like it... and I am sorry but their version of Fast Dial is vastly inferior. Another problem I have with Opera is that the 'additional features' inbuilt are mostly not features that I personally would use, but I am stuck with them as they can't be removed! All i can do is repeat myself.. its down to personal taste... but almost any browser is safer, faster and more stable than IE, and I congratulate you on using one of the many free alternatives to the Microsoft monster.I'll stick with Firefox though 😉
