Everyone Loves a $0 Price Tag

Free software is great. Whether it be a useful application or an exciting game, downloading something you want without having to pay a fee is normally a welcome experience. Unfortunately, with freedom comes a hefty price tag.

The number of free downloads that can be harmful to your computer and personal information seems to be growing at a rather alarming rate. Hackers and other folks with malicious intentions have found that exploiting freebies can be quite a successful method towards achieving their goals. Most Web surfers are quick to download free software without taking the time to investigate exactly what they're getting and where it's coming from. Web browsers are certainly no exception to the rule here, and you should be very careful when it comes to where you obtain them from.
