Always good that they update quickly but I don’t like seeing that it can install software with no user interaction.

Firefox is one of my go to browsers. If Edge doesn’t load a page properly I try Firefox before deciding it’s a problem with the site itself.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.
