Private browsing: it’s not so private Comments Off on Private browsing: it’s not so private

Uit een onderzoek van Ars Technica bleek dat “private browsing” zoals vele browsers het noemen, toch niet zo private is. The researchers found that the browsers’ protections were imperfect. Browsers did not properly isolate their private sessions from non-private ones, with the result that suitably crafted sites could trace visitors between private and non-private sessions. […]

Dear Firefox: Please forgive me Comments Off on Dear Firefox: Please forgive me

But when you showed up, it got ugly. She hated it when another browser came into the room. And not just you; Safari, Flock, Opera, even IE during those desperate moments when a Web site just insisted on it. My system would freeze tight and I'd have to crawl under my desk and yank the […]

It is easy to install and easy to use, even for a mainstream, non-technical user. It can be downloaded, free, at mozilla.com by […]
