I have updated the Home Computing box on the right. It now contains links to suggested software for any home.
Firefox: For the safest browsing around. Make sure to set your history to clear on exit. See below for suggested addons.
Adblock Plus: The Web has never looked better (and safer).
Noscript: I am always stunned at the number of sites wanting to run a script on my machine. You will be too.
OpenDNS: If you have kids on the web, this is a great resource for protecting them from errant clicks. And saving you from hours of re-installing software.
The rest of the links are great resources for Home Computing. Feel free to write if you have any questions or suggestions.
