    Hi futurefriend,

    Both the browsers you mentioned contain no spyware.
    The freeware version of Opera does display adds.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hello FF just saw your post. You might want to check out the Firebird browser. No nasties of any kind. :D

    Hi.

    If you're looking for a browser package with email I'd go with Opera.That is if you don't mind the banner ads in the free version.Opera works well with my Outlook Express account.

    If you are looking for a browser only,Firebird is good.
    You could also add the Thunderbird mail program to go along with Firebird.I never tried Thunderbird.
