Browsers, Webmail & Email Programs

What are they?

Browser is a program that you view anything that comes from or used with the Internet. IE (Internet Explorer), Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Tor and many more are some examples of browsers.

Webmail is when you use any browser to access your Email. Gmail.com, yahoo.com, Hotmail.com and the list continues here with even more options. Then you start getting in quality and simplicity. Bell.net is one of the simplest and with fewer functions for the user. Where Gmail has a simplistic look and is one of the most options for the user.

Email programs are when you set up the program to send & receive your Email into your computer devices. This is not a safe way to receive your Emails, as you are more susceptible to infections of bad software.

The best way to access your Email is by using the webmail that uses browsers, as the anti-virus programs will have a better chance of catching the infected files. For more on these, refer to my Internet Safety blog post and others.

Now we get to the topic of browser issues. Most of the time, I have found that when I cannot access something, that my browser is more that likely out of date. Then I go to another browser to make sure if it is not a website code error. If the website in question works, then I know its time to download the latest version of the failed browser.
As a default, I never use the same browser to update itself as it is common that it will tell you that it is up-to-date and its not. There are a few exceptions to this, such as the browsers are always trying to keep up with the web developmentā€˜s coding.

To sum things up, Email with a browser (webmail) is the best option to write, read and reply to your Emails. Always think of things as "It is better to be safe than sorry".
