Or, the bigger the target, the easier it is to hit it.
I guess you're right.
Oh right! Thanks for an analogy I can grasp.
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!
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!
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.
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.
"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.
