By now it is clear to many people that with the continued incidence of computer viruses, worms, trojans, parasites, goons, goblins, and maleficient vapors, one should either be extremely vigilant (not likely for most medical students) when using Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Outlook Express, or find a better alternative. May I suggest Mozilla, winner of "Best of 2003, Web Browser" by PC World Magazine, "Best Web Browser, 2003" by LinuxJournal Magazine, and "Beyond Bliss" by Time Magazine.

A few options:
- for both a very stable web browser and mail client, try vanilla Mozilla

- For a more cutting-edge (read: developmental) browser, try Mozilla Firefox.

- For a more cutting-edge email client, try Mozilla Thunderbird

And just in case you think all this Mozilla stuff is only for the geeks, Wired now lists Firefox as "wired," Mozilla as "tired," and Explorer as "expired."
