Google Chrome verses Firefox
A friend told me I should change from Google Chrome to FoxFire for my browser. I haven't had any problems with Chrome. He said ForxFire is much more secure. Since I'm not computer savvy I don't want to change without some confirmation he's correct. Hope someone can give me some input. Thanks

And here is news from ?
I happen to use Firefox. Chrome and Safari. I find FF to be my perfered browser. Maybe others on the Forum can add what they think is the safest browser? Or add their opinions..
Nothing is 100% secure. But using an Antivirus protection and keeping your browser updated does help. It's really a choice I think in the long run. These browsers are always being updated and patched for security.
Hope this helps?
I don't think that there is much to chose between Firefox and Chrome when it comes to security but IMO Firefox wins hands down regarding privacy. There are also many add-ons that will make Firefox even more private than it is "out of the box".
Google's Chrome likes to track you for its commercial ends whereas Mozilla's Firefox is open source. Like Sherry you will have worked out that I also favour Firefox but at the end of the day it's a matter of personal choice. You can easily give Firefox a try whilst still retaining Chrome on your system - it's not a matter of one or the other.
I really like Chrome and I know everyone is going to have a prefference. I like the ease of clearing my cookies and other history with Chrome while other web engines, I think you may need to be a Nasa sceincetist t do it :-)
So Chrome is My choice
To do this in Firefox it's really not hard. Please look here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-browsing-history-and-cookies-firefox-os
Thank you for your input! It's great to have involvement and opinions from others!;)
Thank you for the helpful information. I will check it out. I'm a creature of habit and will probably stay with Chrome but who knows I might change.
Thank you for your input. Looks like I've got a big decision to make.
Thanks for your input. I also like Chrome and have used it for years with no problems. Who knows it might be time to take the plunge and make a change.
Thank you for your input. I will look at the sites given by Sherry and hopefully will make a decision soon.
Thank you for the info. I think I'm going to stick with Chrome since I pretty comfotable with it.
What is the Web Filtering Extension? Does it come with Webroot?
And you will see these when you do searches:
Mine shows grayed out so I don't have it. I guess it's something I have to pay for in order to add.
Thanks for the info.
If you don't see the Extension or extensions please follow this to manually install the Web Filter!
