After seeing this, I won´t be doing anything except browsing with FF. But see my post under ¨Why put up with the pain¨ about security. I feel that we should discuss this whole topic in great detail as a group to help all, outside of the different opinions, to put up the proper barricades against the intrusions that are apparently rife...

Maybe someone should put all the appropriate posts into a separate thread?

All that did for me was displayed some of the page code for pages I'd visited. Not a single thing that I'd entered from the keyboard was displayed, no matter how many times I tried.

Hello,

I am a Firefox and Safari user. For some reason, Firefox and Fox news do not get along too well on my Macintosh OS X platform. SO I safari the news page. No big deal to me on that one.

For entering bank numbers and that, you should be checking to see that you have an encrypted connection to the website... look for a little lock symbol on the lower right hand corner of your browser. If you are not "locked" you are transmitting in the clear anyways.

And to the folks asking if there is any sure-fire completely secure system.... there is... it is a formatted computer inside of a concrete bunker with no electrical cords, and a hard drive with a nail going through it. Less sarcastically, any system that is useful to people will ahve some risk. The goal is to limit that risk.
