ABSTRACT
This article discusses the security issues which must be tackled when browsing the World Wide Web. Spyware and ActiveX, a set of Microsoft-developed technologies used for sharing information among different applications, have become problems because ActiveX permits an outsider to silently upload programs, such as spyware, to a web-connected computer via the browser. The free Firefox seems to be the browser with the buzz. As more and more people are using Firefox, one thing is becoming apparent, aside from no annoying pop-ups. Security in Firefox is below the surface and is invisible. With its built-in Google search tool and dozens of free extensions, it is easy to customize to one's specific needs.
