A great thing about Firefox, unlike IE, is that when a security hole is found, it is almost immediatley fixed. As spyware advances to target Firefox, Firefox will advance to stop it
Some other good browsers though are Opera and Slimbrowser.

Not all sites will open in Opera though, but all the ones that I need do

Curious logic though, I'm just beginning the migration to Linux, an unpatched system may last longer in staying clear from hacks than an unpatched windows system running internet explorer - but all operating systems are vulnerable.
Applying the same logic, one could stay away from Linux, because if it ever does get to challenge Microsoft's dominance of the market, that too will then be targetted by hackers and the like.
Sure, some hackers target Microsoft as an anti-corporate thing, many are just criminally minded or plain ignorant as to the devastating effect their 'work' has on the I.T. community.
Join the quite revolution - check out Linux, ditch internet explorer, resign yourself to the fact that there is no such thing as a safe computer - unless it is buried 6 foot under ground in a concrete bunker and is absolutely not connected to the outer world.
