        ... but it is also a lot safer.  It takes a while to get used to it and you're going to learn a lot more about how many scripts are needed to make a web page display.  But in the end it's worth it, it protects your privacy and your computer.

          a really tenacious trojan a few years ago, and after that I got very security-conscious...for a while, it was even like a phobia, but I think I have a good balance now. My friend Matt says the internet is like living in a bad neighborhood. Most days you'll be fine, but you do have to keep your doors locked.
