    Personally I choose a browser for its functionality and speed

    I agree...no browser is secure

    The Nintendo Wii is fairly popular here, that's a major target audience isn't it? Wii uses Opera.
    But you don't do your internet banking or shopping with wii
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....

    Internet Baking itself is a risk, regardless of the Browser.

    Also, secure browsers, Links, Links2, Lynx, E-Links... Those are fairly secure.

    Last time I tried internet baking we had to call the fire department. I preheated my computer to 500 instead of 350, and the cookies just about burned the whole darn thing down... It is risky... that is for sure.

    Nice one

    So 500 was what you were supposed to use huh? I think AMD can help you there.

    Even though they tend to idle warm i still love the amd cpu's.

    learnt my lesson a few years back i think it was one of those prescott chip's, anyhow the machine had been running f@h for a long time idling away in the cupboard.

    went to swap out a few parts and upgrade it a bit figured the chip would of cooled down by the time i had removed the heatsink etc, went to unclip it from it's housing and got one hell of a burn on my fingers from it.

    still missing a whole fingerprint on 1 1/2 fingers from it.

    Wow... That's pretty impressive for a CPU related burn. I thought it was neat when someone got their nuts burned by a Dell Laptop...

    OK guys, this you really have to see:

    Internet Banking itself is a risk, regardless of the Browser.
    If I were going to do it I would use a dedicated stand alone machine that was not used for general web surfing or e-mail.

    I still believe that a lot of people's problems are brought on themselves. If you keep everything up to date and use common sense then you are generally reasonably safe.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
