My web browser of choice is Firefox. One of the appeals is the pile of add-ons that you can use to personalise the way you view the web. If I were recommending a browser, that’s the one I’d go for.
Yesterday I was looking at Opera’s widgets and noticed “Stay Secure”. Useful for very quickly displaying the current vulnerabilities of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Konqueror in an unobtrusive graphic on your desktop.
The information is provided by Secunia and by clicking on any of the browser icons on the the graphic the detailed report from Secunia is accessed.
So now, if you were to ask me to recommend a browser, I’d say Firefox, but use Opera (and the Stay Secure widget) for your secure transactions (if the site works in Opera ).
