Practical Matters

eBay requires only a web browser, an email account, and a sense of adventure. But to use the hacks in this book, you’ll want to make sure you have all of the following:

Recent web browser.

Your web browser is your portal to the entire eBay universe, so make sure you’re not using browser software released before the fall of the Berlin wall.

Warning

The vast majority of malware (malicious software, such as spyware and adware) has been designed to target the most common browser, namely Internet Explorer running on a Windows PC. If you’re using Internet Explorer, you should seriously consider abandoning it in favor of a more secure browser, such as Mozilla Firefox (available for free from www.mozilla.org). In addition to the added safety, Firefox sports a streamlined interface, an effective popup-blocker, tabbed browsing, configurable skins, and hundreds of cool extensions.
