    Or, the bigger the target, the easier it is to hit it.

    Oh right! Thanks for an analogy I can grasp. :thumb:

    Although, I don't really consider Ghostery as a relatively high risk target. Plus it's useful until I learn how to use NoScript properly. LOL! :D

    Didn't you say yourself the benefits outweigh the risks?

    Yes I did. I still stand by that for every program on my computer.

    It's not too scary.

    Attack surface is the executable code on your system. By adding a program to your system you increase the attack surface ie: the number of attack vectors. This includes, I suppose, an addon.

    OK, thanks for the clarification. I shudder to think of all the extensions/add-ons I have on Firefox! :D

    Well I'm not so sure how big a deal something like an extension would be. If it's something that just changes css it might not be as big a deal. If it's something that changes the programs behavior it'll likely be a bigger deal.

    thanks Page. :)

    from the kink you gave me there are only 2 spell checkers:
    - After the Deadline, and
    - Spell Checker for Chrome
    --------------------------
    I'll test both in the upcoming days and come back to tell which one I like the best.

    edit:
    "Spell Checker for Chrome" seem to be the best of the 2, from what i've seen so far.

    Can not have favorite "two"? I just vote for opera, but firefox is also my cup of tea. I use opera for daily browsing, but firefox for work. Can't live without them.
