Firefox 3.6 Now Out ...

Jeez, you’re seriously not still using Microsoft Internet Explorer, are you? Why not try a free browser that is better - faster, more secure, more reliable, more adaptable, more upgradable - and more usable - Mozilla Firefox.

The latest MS Internet Explorer V8 looks like a substantial upgrade with good features, but then it should be - most of the good features were ‘lifted’ from the latest Firefox. The only thing MS left behind in MSIE were all those security holes.

Firefox is currently the second (behind MSIE) most widely used browser, with 23.81% of worldwide usage share of web browsers, according to Net Applications.

I believe that the only reason some people still use MSIE is because they can’t be bothered to change (until it crashes finally and completely. or their identity is stolen. Then it’s too late.)

Some security experts, including Bruce Schneier and David A. Wheeler recommended that users should stop using MSIE for normal browsing, and switch to a different browser instead; Wheeler specifically recommended Mozilla Firefox.

Mind you, there is one reason not to download Firefox v3.6  … Firefox v4.0 is nearly ready!
