i just read a great article on how to browse the web securely with his creation of the “Secure Browsing Environment”.

The author shows you how to:

    • ClamAV
    • OpenDNS (prevent phishing attacks)
    • ISnort In-Line/Oinkmaster/Swatch alert scripts
    • Chrome and Firefox extensions for added security around cookies, ads, HTTPS
