  1. This is a public service announcement to anyone who is using Internet Explorer.

    A new vulnerability has been found that affects every version of IE, including IE 11, allowing a hacker to compromise your PC simply by visiting a web page.

    It is recommended anyone using IE to install Firefox: http://getfirefox.com or Chrome.

    These browsers are more secure by design and will help avoid issues like this.

    Until your IE is patched, it is not safe to browse the internet with it, as even legit websites could infect you by Advertisements.

    Please browse safe.

  6. Firefox AdBlock > Chromes Adblock :p

    Firefox's addon API is far superior to Chromes. So if you want security, Firefox offers more.

    Firefox + AdBlock + NoScript = You're safe. (Though I use Linux so I don't need NoScript ;))

    And I didn't feel like looking up chrome's URL, but Firefox's is quite easy to remember =P
  7. http://Chrome.com :p
