*Recommended* Browser / Email / IM
This might be off topic, but I'd love to get input from some of our Norton experts.
I'm a user running Vista Ultimate 64-bit on five machines around the house. I plan to have Norton 360 v3 running on each (just finished beta testing it, and its really one of the best all-inclusive suites I've seen on 64 bit). I know Symantec / Norton supports many different browsers, email clients, and IM clients, but I'd love to know what the resident experts would recommend?
I know Firefox is supposed to be safer than IE7, but as all of my users (including myself) do daily work in Standard User accounts, wouldn't that make IE7 in protected mode safer (particularly given updates don't come through for Firefox when running as a Standard User)? If you go around the web there are differing opinions, but the "Firefox and NoScript!" mantra rings hollow often for me, given NoScript is only supported by one person.
For email / IM / calendar, I'm using Windows Live Messenger and Mail. However, it doesn't look like Windows Live Mail is supported yet -- Am I mistaken?
Again, my apologies for this slightly off-topic post, but as I plan to re-image a few of my boxes when I install N360 anyway, thought if there's a time for making this change, its now.
