Download Firefox 4 or Chrome 10 now

Do yourself a favor and download Firefox 4 or Chrome 10 today. Both browsers are major improvements over previous versions. (I can't speak to Internet Explorer 9 since it doesn't work with Windows XP.)

I can't tell you how much better Firefox 4 is than version 3. The reason that I began using Google's Chrome browser was that Firefox got so sluggish. It seemed to take longer and longer just to load. However, Firefox is back with speed and features that make it again my browser of choice.

These are both excellent choices - particularly for public access computing. Internet Explorer--and 9 is pretty good--is a brain drain, susceptible to too many toolbar add-ons and web exploits. Firefox 4 is an excellent alternative, especially since now you can enable Private (not cached + HTTPS when available) browsing without having to open a new window - excellent for accessing bank accounts and the like when doing so from your library's network.
