An excellent read. The article gives a very good, unbiased (IMHO) review. I was particularly pleased to read the bit about security.

As far as I can tell, the only reason to use Firefox over AB is the mythical security thing. Since I have virus protection, ad ware protection, soft and hardware firewalls etc up the wazoo and keep them current and run them daily, I don't consider security to be a problem anyway - at least no more in the IE engine than Gecko/Firefox.

I'm with chef_Garry on this one,

But that said............security wise.. you only relay need to be concerned about that, if you like to vistit the more unsavory sites on the net.

Ie...Porn sits (Not meaning all porn sites are bad. The USER run porn sites are on average are 99.9% safe. for exp [Removed by moderator] ). And warez sites.

Theese are the one's who use underhand tactics. So for the average user I think AB Browser is spot on. Let the pervs and thief's (warez sites down loaders), bother with the security problem of web browsers.

Just my penith Worth guys.

Pls note, that the link is for a example use for good porn sites and Adult content is def there LoL
