All PC's come installed with Microsoft Internet Explorer as a browser for using the internet.

The first computer I had came installed with it and Netscape and AOL - America On Line.

Since dial up was the only option of the day, I signed up with AOL - it was already installed and ready to go - no having to try to figure it all out.

It was great - I had no idea was a browser was - AOL was the way I signed on and browsed the internet - too simple.

My next computer didn't have AOL installed, but the installation CDs were everywhere at the time - they came in the mail quite regular too.

Still didn't need a browser - AOL provided what I needed and used.

Then DSL came to town.

I was so excited - couldn't wait for that high speed internet.

It was touted how it was always online - even when I didn't use AOL so sign online.

How was that possible?

Discovery of the Microsoft Internet Explorer was made.

I used it - but I didn't like it - crashed way too much for me.

Then I discovered Firefox after reading about it in a forum.

More secure, less buggy, and totally customizable.

After reading several more recommendations online, I decided to give it a try.

All I could say was "WOW".

It has been the browser of choice for all the computers that have ever entered our house and my families homes too.

The link is above if you haven't yet discovered it - it really is as good as it sounds!
