Personally I choose a browser for its functionality and speed
I agree...no browser is secure

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

Internet Baking itself is a risk, regardless of the Browser.
Also, secure browsers, Links, Links2, Lynx, E-Links... Those are fairly secure.

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

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:

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.
