You can download it for free on the website mentioned. I haven't tried it out myself, yet. But I'll let you guys know what my opinion is on the program.

I don't really use plugins. Except for one to download Youtube music video so that I can convert the file to MP3 :D

But thanks for the warning, though.

Don't see the point using FireFox anymore as an alternative IE. The whole aim was to avoid viruses, trojans, malware etc as it wasn't worth a hacker’s time to write malicious software for such a small platform. Nowadays, with Firefox becoming more popular, hackers are beginning to turn their attention to FireFox too. To really avoid the big bad nasty world out there, get a Mac, no-one bothers there arse for such a tiny user base. There's hardly a virus out there written for the Mac, as it's totally pointless, hackers want notoriety, they aren't going to get upsetting such a minority. Mac users tend to think they don't get viruses etc due to the wonderful Mac OS, wrong of course. On saying that, personally, I'll stick to my PC and take my chances.

God :)

I wouldn't be so sure of that. FF3 scans downloads for viruses, warns you when you come on a dangerous website, etc. So I'd say that Mozilla can easily outsmart those hackers (who are mostly fat 40-year old virgins anyway). Also, you can only really get hackers if you download certain files on notorious websites. I will save all of you guys the details since viruses, trojans, etc is common knowledge for people using computers. But for the rest Godfrey, I agree with you. I have never heard of an infected Mac or a disappointed Mac user. Mac certainly makes good computers and software, Windoze is nothing compared to it.
