Firefox

Sure, IE is the most popular browser out there, and perhaps the new IE7 is a marked improvement. However, Firefox is a tried-and-true browser that is fast and easy to use and has great features for med students.

Why does the browser matter, you may ask. Well, let's say you have just performed a search for articles on H. pylori infections. There are 10 promising results. Firefox lets you view each one in a tabbed window, simply by control-clicking (clicking while holding the 'Control' key) each one. This may not seem that great, but it greatly cuts down the time and the clutter necessary to do web searches. If you do not have Firefox yet, simply click on the button in the panel on the right and try it out!
