    I just downloaded an update to Itunes and it installed Safari, I am assuming that is their web browser? Is it a good idea to use it with Windows or not? Personal preference?

    What Apple did here was wrong, just wrong. They put their browser into an update stream just so they can get a bit of a boost on their market share. I personally don't like Safari for Windows as it looks just awful in the Windows environent because it was made for Mac. Stay safe, stay with FireFox.

    I have tried firefox, what's the difference? Why are so many people using it rather than IE? Doesn't having yet another program on your computer, even if it is the default, just clutter things up?

    Firefox is a lot faster and more secure. Plus it has many wonderful addons you can download.

    Those are the reasons I use it.

    Does it add more "junk" to the hard drive and slow things up as a whole?

    Nope. Not at all.

    You can always just try it out, and if you don't like it, just uninstall it. It's "risk-free". :D

    I agree. I really like Safari but I don't think Apple should have "pushed" it the way they did.

    Peace...

    Well the speed depends on the computer. While FireFox and IE both work fine on my desktop, Firefox is so slow on my laptop that I can't use it, while IE is much faster. To the basic Internet and E-mail person, just stay with IE.

    I still recommend using Firefox if a person does not know much about computers. It will save them from malware.
