    Can I browse the internet normally with limited account, and is it safe?

    See Limited User accounts can protect your Windows XP computer when you browse the Web and Applying the Principle of Least Privilege to User Accounts on Windows XP, although my own recommendation if you go with LUA is to also employ SuRun. See also SuRun: Easily running Windows XP as a limited user
    Simple browsing - you'll notice virtually no change.
