  • Mac has teh most stable operating system available, next to Linux Ubuntu. Windows PC and server require nearly twice the reboot demand to clear memory hooks than either of the other two.

  • Just goes to show you who is still king of the browsers.  If and when one of the other contenders gets semi close, be prepared for the rampant attacks that have been made against Microsoft.  BTW  the other browsers have been subject to attacks as well and Apple has been the last to admit to it's vulnerabilities and the slowest to patch.  I'd hold off on that mac/crack/book unless you don't mind spending a lot of dough for a part time PC.  Yes, macfans, it's really just a PC.

  • Christina - Yes. (Said the PC to the Mac, hehe. I hope to be a Mac owner again soon.)

    Dejasmom - I think you will like Firefox once you get used to it, especially once you get all the cool add-ons. Check this link out:

  • Too bad the fix didn't come sooner. My work computer's IE was attacked and disabled two weeks ago. Now I use Firefox, but it's still taken me some time to get used to it.

  • I do enjoy all the add-ons available for Firefox. That's a blog for another day though, all my Firefox add-ons, lol. I could go on and on.

    Speaking of Firefox, they also released some security updates today:

    Firefox issues eight patches - Via Networkworld.com

    Mozilla has issued eight patches for its Firefox Web browser, three of which fix problems classified as critical.
    The patches come after security experts have recommended using a browser other than Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 and older versions of IE due to a dangerous vulnerability. Microsoft is due to release an emergency patch for that problem Wednesday.
    Two of the critical Firefox problems could allow an attacker execute a cross-site scripting attack, in which scripts or commands from one Web application that shouldn't run in another are successfully executed. The third problem relates to Firefox's browser engine, and could make it crash or possibly allow someone to remotely execute code on a PC, Mozilla said in its advisory.
