Firefox Scare (1)
I was reading two articles recently published this past week about the Firefox Internet Browser. I was very interested in what each one had to say. The first link claimed that there were critical errors associated with Firefox, allowing hackers to obtain personal information. It did not really go into detail, but as I first read this, I was shocked. In my mind, as well as the opinion of the majority of my friends, Firefox is known to be the faster and more importantly, safer, web browser to use. A threat like this could have had large implications to the internet community. Firefox Critical Error
In addition, the second article was related directly to the first one; it stated that the claim about Firefox was entirely false, and that hackers had essentially made it up as a joke. After reading the second article I was relieved to say the least. This was mostly due to the fact that I use Firefox and didn’t want to find another browser. In the end it just goes to show you that you can't always believe what you see/read/hear the first time around. Firefox Joke Admitted.
