Firefox – Apparently one of the most secure of the major browsers
Truecrypt – A free file encryption program

Foxy Proxy – Proxy tools for Firefox & Internet Explorer
Cool-proxy.net – List of available Proxy IP Addresses
WOT World of Trust – Know which websites to trust
Malware Bytes – Free Anti-malware download
