I recently installed Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird. Both are products under GNU, or open source software, which means free! Just go to mozilla.org if you are interested in using a very safe and secure browser. Just download and install.
That easy. Regarding Firefox and Thunderbird, Firefox is a browser, a direct replacement for Internet Explorer. Thunderbird is an email client, also a replacement for Microsoft Outlook. So, why install a third party software? Why not? The primary reason is security.
I wanted to use a fairly secure browser and email client other than Microsoft. Check out this article. Pretty said isn’t it? You do have a choice! By the way, there was a vulnerability found on Mozilla browsers running on Windows XP yesterday.
However, it does not affect Mozilla browsers on Linux or Mac OS. A quick fix was placed today on mozilla.org.
