    Apparently, web site programmers are getting smarter, at least we can hope so.

    Some sites that I go to regularly, used to demand I.E. to access all features and functions.
    But more recently I can access those sites, with all functions working, when I use Mozilla Firefox.

    The question was asked, "Is there any reason to trust Mozilla or Microsoft more than Opera or Google?"

    Well, almost a year ago, Google made it public that they would be gleaning information from our web searches, to use for their own purposes. (Google ads?) Since then I refuse to use any browser or search engine
    from Google. I can no longer trust them to have my best interests at heart.
    I use only Mozilla Firefox for my browser and "www(dot)ixquick(dot)com" for my Search Engine.
    They keep NO information from my web searches.

    Not nearly enough is said here or elsewhere, about "Safe Internet".
    For instance, does your router have UPnP enabled?
    Or is it enabled in your PC? It should be disabled in both locations!
    You can find out a lot more about that, at
    More specifically: https://www(dot)grc(dot)com/unpnp/unpnp.htm

    Be safe!

    That use to be the case with UPNP and windows xp and maybe Vista. Windows 7 has to have it to enabled to even connect to high speed internet. A lot of posters don't like GRC, I never knew that tell I joined windows 7.

    That GRC site seems to be 13 year old. I don't recall any Armageddon. 😉

    What is CRC?, and what does it do? I ask because I truly do not know. . .
