    One quick question.
    If you have sandboxie enabled, do you still need NoScript extension or is it safe to surf without it?
    Thanks

    Now running AVG Pro with Online Armor Free and ThreatFire. Any real need to include Sandboxie? Or could I uninstall either TF and OA Free and just SB with AVG? I like all my programs, but I'm not sure of why I need anything if SB does what it says it does. Just curious.

    IMO, Sbie cannot block info theft,
    so, that is "YES"

    I haven't use NoScript since I installed Sandboxie. So I say NO you don't need it.

    If you're looking for safe browsing, take a look at Opera. (Also take a look at this. ;))

    I used Opera for about a year... I tried really hard to like it, I know it's safer, and has a lot of great features, like the built-in mail, or the built-in rss reader...but for some reason I just prefer Firefox...with some extensions it can be pretty safe.

    And regarding to that site, I read it a few days ago, it was on someody's signature... interesting reading...makes you question some things...maybe in some time (when I make up my mind) I'll give Opera another try... thanks!

    While trying to switch to Opera (I used to love Firefox...) it was hard for me.
    But after some customizations I've been using it happily for a few months. :cool:
