I ran across something really neat---a portable version of FireFox browser. You can put it on a thumb drive (or pen drive or flash drive), carry it around with you, and browse the internet anywhere you find a USB port with internet access. And you can import all your old Internet Explorer favorites as FireFox bookmarks. This way you can have your very own personal "Favorites" (e.g., you can easily check work-related bookmarked web sites from home, and your personal bookmarked web sites from work.) And you don't need to worry about prying eyes checking out what you have bookmarked in either place or what web sites you visited by checking out your "History" in Internet Explorer---the default browser that's probably running on your desktop PC. And you can enter web browser search criteria without worrying about having to clear the history when you are finished. I'm sure an ardent hacker can still track your usage, but the average person won't be able to. You can run the portable FireFox without modifying, disabling, or uninstalling Internet Explorer. And you can set FireFox to automatically fill in some of those IDs and passwords that you might otherwise not want filled in automatically. Of course, then you need to protect the thumb drive. Here is where to find it: LINKY To install, just download the ZIP file, save it to your thumb drive, and open it (it will unzip itself) to your thumb drive. It will create a "firefox" directory and all the requisite directories underneath. To use Firefox on your thumb drive, simply double click the file PortableFirefox.exe in the firefox directory on your thumb drive. To import IE Favorites, open IE and go File > Export. Choose Favorites and remember where you put the file. Then open FireFox and do File > Import and point to the file you just saved.
