I have been using IE all the way. I have a beta of 9. I have been using it for a couple of months. Loads fast but still has few bugs they need to iron out. As long as you stick with the automatic updates, you should be fine.

I would be aware of Google and the Chrome regime. You are doubly "profiled", by using the google search engine AND thier browser.

As an experiment, I ran a version of W7 beta for about a year with IE8, no virus checker or spybot crap. Not a problem. As long as one is aware of the sites you are on and what stuff you download, things sould be fine.

That's a bit worrying. So, what you're saying (if I understood correctly) is that someone knows I spend ALL day on RIBnet, Googling ribby stuff?

My game is up

Firefox with Noscript and Adblock Plus plugins installed gets rid of pretty much anything nasty. Sites don't get to run scripts unless you OK it first and banner ads disappear as if by magic

Adblock works with Chrome as well.
