Your web browser is under attack. Aside from simply tricking you into downloading and running malicious software, attackers mainly target flaws in your browser and its plug-ins to compromise your PC.
Use these tips to secure your web browser from attackers, whether they’re using malvertising attacks, compromising websites, or just directing you to malicious websites they’ve created.

The key things I notice that this article fails to mention are the importance of blocking adverts and blocking scripts, the tips given are good but alone they might not be enough. For better protection they should be combined with an ad blocker and a script blocker, for firefox ad block plus and noscript work well together, and they both work well with having malwarebytes anti-exploit installed "behind" the browser as well.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
