Dear God

Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser is often derided as being unsecure. Well it is. Terribly so. There are so many holes in IE that you could fit one of those giant Dune worms inside of it. Sometimes there are patches to close these holes, but it's hard to keep track of them all. So why not just do what Microsoft advises:
The most effective step that you can take to help protect yourself from malicious hyperlinks is not to click them. Rather, type the URL of your intended destination in the address bar yourself. By manually typing the URL in the address bar, you can verify the information that Internet Explorer uses to access the destination Web site. To do so, type the URL in the Address bar, and then press ENTER.
That's right, DON'T CLICK LINKS. Hahahahahahahaha. Uh, isn't that the whole point of a web browser?

Why not check out the Mozilla Firebird browser instead.

You know you are a nerd when, you make fun of a computer program using reference to a 25 year old science fiction novel.

mmm... shai-hulud.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it is gone past me I will turn to see fear's path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
