Mozilla on the rise
Ok, so it's been popular forever. But Wired has recently done a few stories about Mozilla that has got me thinking I need this program (I just downloaded it). Mozilla/Firefox is an open source browser that can be used on PC or Mac as an alternative to Netscape, Internet Explorer, or whatever it is that Macs use. It is apparently much more secure than other mainstream (PC) browsers, most malware is written for IE. Also, there is are a group of extensions for Mozilla called Firefox that allow the user to do some pretty cool stuff, like block all those annoying flash ads and blinking jpeg ads on websites, as well as pop ups and so on. Anyway, I don't know much about it yet, but I am going to give it all a whirl.
Here are some Wired articles to check out if you are interested in Mozilla:
