Enjoy safer browsing with these five handy apps

Introduction

It's no secret that the internet can be a dangerous place. Even savvy users can accidentally mistype a URL for a common website and land on a malicious site instead. Of course, internet malware isn't the only concern. Many perfectly legitimate sites go to great lengths to track your behavior.

This gallery looks at five apps that are designed to help improve browser security. I've focused primarily on Internet Explorer (with one exception), but similar apps are available for other browsers.

Note: This gallery is also available as an article.
