    i use firefox and I like it. It automaticaly spell checks what you type, is very similar to explorer to use but doesnt get viruses like explorer does. The only thing is my website is hosted with Microsoft and to make updates I have to use explorer because with firefox it wont slide up and down if the item is bigger than the window.

    Use firefox instead. internet explorer will always allow malware and certain types of viruses access to your computer. No one should use it. Ever.

    Firefox is opensource, which limits programs (such as viruses and malware) ability to horn in on your activities.

    Firefox also has a skin that looks just like internet explorer.

    Google tends to be screwed up in general- everything but the actual website.

    http://www.firefox.com

    its free, you just download it and use it. It'll set up an icon right on your desktop, and it'll bring up the option to make it your primary browser.
