    There is no real reason not to update ie more security; faster loading; more efficient and the process can be handled all by the auto-updater.

    True, but you always have the gripers out there, you know, the ones that still groan about their favorite, old as dirt and vulnerable OS? Then again, hey, some of em have a point, some browsers are getting worse as they go along.

    My plan? Forget about Gmail. :D I use a local ISP and have my email with them. No one has any interest in hacking a mom & pop outfit.
