Two REALLY good reasons to use FireFox as your web browser…

I know I keep banging  on about this, but one of the easiest and cheapest ways to protect yourself from online scams and phishing is simple: Change your Web Browser!

Here are two really good reasons why you should use FireFox to surf the web instead of the ubiquitous Internet Explorer.

Firefox includes strict anti-phishing and anti-malware measures and it’s open source so it has thousands of security experts around the globe working around the clock to keep you (and your personal information) safe.

1. Anti-Malware

Firefox 3 protects you from viruses, worms, trojan horses and spyware. If you accidentally access an attack site, you’ll receive a full-sized browser message as a warning. A continuously updated list of attack-sites tells us when to stop you from browsing, so there’s nothing for you to update or maintain.

2. Anti-Phishing

Shop and do business safely on the Internet. Firefox gets a fresh update of web forgery sites 48 times in a day, so if you try to visit a fraudulent site that’s pretending to be a site you trust (like your bank), a browser message—big as life—will stop you.
