OK, so it’s not really all that big of a change, but I’m trying out Firefox for browsing. I’m also giving Thunderbird a test drive for e-mail.

I’ve been an exclusive Internet Explorer/Outlook user ever since I got one of these crazy things, and I’ve had no real problems that I know of. But for some reason, I got a little paranoid yesterday while reading about the Scob thing and other little nasties out there.

So far, I haven’t noticed a whole lot that’s different, except for a couple of little things that I was accustomed to in IE. The only real issue is that – right now, at least – graphics seem to load pretty slowly in Firefox, as compared to Internet Explorer. Maybe some of you “tech geeks” can tell me if I’m missing something somewhere.
