Which is the Best/Safest Browser and Email client
Hi everyone,

I see a lot of information on this forum about browsers and email clients, in your opinion Which are the best Browsers or email clients or the best combination of them.

The reason I am asking is I'm seriously considering dumping Internet Explorer and Outlook/Outlook Express because there seems to be so many problems associated with the Microsoft offerings including all kinds of attacks on them.

What are your opinions/criticisms of the various ones on offer e.g. Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, Netscape, etc. and Thunderbird, Incredimail and others.

Jon.

i generally use a web based e-mail ( g-mail ) and have switched to firefox after seeing some internet security results which I.E failed miserably ........ mozilla came out without a security hole and i believe it to be the safest and fastest browser i`ve tried so far ......

I use Mozilla Firefox because it has an Adblock plug-in. You can delete the advertisement on a website including popups.

I use Netscape 7.1 for Browser, Mozilla Thunderbird for mail. Firefox doesn't have as good of an engine for flash, if you do any of that.
