Are these browsers any good? Are they more secure than Internet Explorer?

Hi! How are you my comrade. I think that question should be ask at the Spywatch forum, maybe there you will get a reply. Just wanted to help you. I am not an expert, so I will not answer you on this question, because I do not want to pertend that I know the answer and you download it and you are infected, so I will leave it to the expert on this forum.
Take good care and stay safe. ;)

No. They are as secure (or not) as Internet explorer. Avant,slimbrowsers etc are what people call IE shells, they are based off IE and are vulnerable to the same weaknesses as IE. You will still need to downlaod the same patches for Internet explorer.

BTW why not try Firefox ? A new version was just released

Please note that the software I recommend above is entirely based on only my own experience and testing. In no way should my comments,opinions and endorsements be construed as an endorsement by the forum, nor do they reflect the advise or recommendations by the experts or helpers at spywareinfo.
