Thanks to Secunia PSI I'm keeping all my programs secure all the time (right now 215 programs) - the only programs that continue being unsecure all the time are (some of) the browsers. One day it's firefox, the next day it's Chrome, and so on.

I tend to listen to these security warnings and always use the most secure (green) browser, if applicable. But it's pretty nasty. You always have to exchange links, have to set the browser in the default programs of windows... and that's where my proposal comes in: I'd like to have a setting in PSI to automatically set the default browser (and maybe exchange some links in task bar etc.) when the vulnerability information updates. If there are more than one secure browsers, maybe PSI could offer the user the possibility to prioritize the browsers (1st browser: FF, 2nd browser Chrome, a.s.o.)

For me this would make staying secure a lot easier. What do you think?

Checking every day/so often means that you are the decider , that's how I think it should be :))


I don't have a problem with deciding (I'm an IT professional), I'm just lazy (again, I'm an IT professional :D). I understand your concerns that PSI shouldn't decide for the user - that's why I proposed making it optional and letting the user make a prioritized list...
