Hi guys,
I recently started a home-based online job. I use internet explorer but it gives a lot of error messages while surfing. I want a browser that provides more features and I wish to open multiple sites in a single window task. Can anyone help me with a suitable and powerful web browser?

I personally suggest Mozilla Firefox. It's far more secure than IE. Reasons being that IE is fully integrated throughout the Windows OS. It is your 'My Computer' and all of that ya know? Firefox is a stand-alone web browser. Also, ActiveX is disabled by default. ActiveX controls are possible reasons why spyware and malware could be affecting your PC. So just head over to Firefox web browser | Faster, more secure, & customizable You won't regret it. Give it a whirl...

I will also say you should go with Firefox. Another alternative, if you don't like Firefox, is the browser Opera.

I vote Firefox, although I don't have a wonderful experience with it.

Yeah! It’s a very old issue. Now me and many of my friends are all using Mozilla Firebox for surfing the net. It is a powerful web browser. It provides 101 features that make surfing the web more comfortable and less confusing. You just visit browsers-review.com and download it easily. Hope this will help you.
Good luck!

I use Firefox all the time. Between AdBlock Plus and the various other plugins, I'd be lost without it.

avast! is also a good freeware program. Anti-Virus, Firewall, and Data Protection all in one. It's pretty awesome. Go to avast! antivirus software - computer virus, worm and Trojan protection by ALWIL Software It's a pretty sweet deal. It'll keep ya safe from hackers aka - FBI.
