A good Web browser can interpret all kinds of coding and deliver to your computer screen a page that looks pretty much the way its creator envisioned. Choose the wrong browser, and you'll find yourself stuck or unwittingly vulnerable to strangers with bad intentions. Our choice: Mozilla's just-updated Firefox 1.5, which looks and feels a lot like the original Firefox that made its debut in November 2004. It suppresses pop-up ads, thwarts spyware and loads pages faster than Internet Explorer, the browser used by about 85 percent of Web surfers.
