This is rapidly heading OT! I didn't intend to spark a lengthy conversation 
about AV strategies and products, this is not the place. However as list 
mom I felt I should try and get it across that there is a high risk and 
it's getting worse as virii get smarter.

However I have used Opera here for several years. It is a very nice browser 
with some really good features not found in IE or NS. However it does fail 
on some sites, especially some optimised for IE and using scripting. But 
then they all do:)

Pegasus is probably the most powerful email client there is, hugely 
configureable and extensible, and rather ugly.
