I'm thinking of installing Opera to my system. With the latest Firefox upgrade, I lost some Kaspersky elements I feel are important. Someone suggested using a program called Secunia to make sure my browser is up to date? That I wouldn't have to bother with all the frequent updates?

Can members here advise me if I'm off base on this? I don't ever want to make the mistake again of allowing an update+then finding it has wiped out what I want to have working/showing.

Secunia is only one program. What are some other easy to use + not too "tech-speak" for me?

Thank you

You can use FileHippo Update Checker.
Note: it requires NET Framework 2.0 or higher.
