I haven't run IE in a year and run Adaware once a quarter just for fun and
have not seen spyware since.  And the newest feature of 1.0, notifying you
when ANYTHING try's to install, is just one more example of FireFox's focus
on security.

And as for those sites that use ActiveX, I pass them by since they don't
have the good since to stick with web standards.

FireFox ROX!
