The Mac Police will be round to visit you shortly -- to give you a "tour" of the re-education camp!

I hope nobody gets the impression that I don't like FF -- it's a perfectly fine browser and if you genuinely like it better, great! It's all about finding the best tool.

Do yourself a favour, though, and uninstall that Sophos. It's just taking up resources pointlessly, IMHO. At its core, much of Mac OS X is UNIX, and UNIX hasn't had a virus in -- well, ever that I know of. Certainly nothing too serious, though I wouldn't say it's perfectly secure either. The point, though, is that its very structure throws up enough obstacles to make a virus nearly impossible to pull off -- and that PLUS the tightly-knit Mac community means there's very little chance of anything genuinely malicious getting very far; it's nearly impossible to write a real virus, and even if one did, the word (and the cure) gets out too fast to allow for much damage, which is what virus writers want.

In short, we're unappealing to lowlife scum. Awwww, what a shame.
