An off topic question, but do you think Google Chrome is secure enough? I have been using IE for years, and I, like others, am starting to see more articles and such of how IE is basically falling behind...considerably. I have Chrome on here, and it's up to date, but I am somewhat apprehensive in using it to do things like online shopping. What do you think? I don't have Firefox. I tried it a few years back and did not like it at all. But, with regard to that, how is Firefox with security? What would YOU choose to do sensitive things like shopping and paying bills and such?
Thanks for the help.
When I do anything sensitive I always make sure that my computer is scanned and everything is up to date. I also have my IE set to "Enhanced Protection Mode" and the 64-bit processes mode that goes along with that. I also make sure to check the security certificate of any site I go to in which I do anything sensitive.
This may sound sort of goofy, but after I do any transactions and whatnot, I shut everything down, including my Hughesnet modem, then restart everything. Then, once back up, I scan again.
Maybe I should download Firefox and just give it a try. It couldn't hurt, and it might very well be different than it was when I tried it back in the day.
Netscape was a great browser. I used it quite often. It was also sort of like Netscape was one of the first, very widely used, freeware programs.
