Thread Details

Just posting this well-known browser-option as a public-service announcement for any youngsters who aren't aware of the option to set-up the free Firefox internet browser as your "default" browser on your computer.

This article from today's news points-out why Firefox is such a good choice for those who prefer to limit the amount of (marketable) info that's gathered about all the websites you visit;
http://www.computerworld.com/arti...ature.html

I've been using Firefox for years, and am impressed with its quality. It seems to have no more, (and no less) quirks / bugs than Safari, Chrome, MSN Explorer, and others, ... but it's designed more just to "help" consumers, (compared to all the others which are designed to "help, But generate profit from consumers").
Take a look at the article and see if it's a browser you might want to try out, ... (you'll probably like it if you do try it). heart
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Too bad they're shifting to the Chrome engine which breaks plugins and there will be no way to fix many of them because the Chrome engine doesn't give as much low level access. They better not break Check 4 Change!

But really, why is this a Hot Deals post?
