- compatibility - Does the browser work with your operating system?
- security - Do you feel that your browser offers you the level of security you want?
- ease of use - Are the menus and options easy to understand and use?
- functionality - Does the browser interpret web content correctly? If you need to install other plug-ins or devices to translate certain types of content, do they work?
- appeal - Do you find the interface and way the browser interprets web content visually appealing?

(from AAA, Apr 2010)
You know that you should keep a bag with water, food, and first aid items in case you are evacuated. But have you thought about the personal documents you might need? Get an easy-to-carry fireproof, waterproof container, and put the following inside:
- A video or a CD or flash drive with photos of your home and valuable possessions
- Your insurance carrier’s after-hours phone number for emergency services, plus the name and number of your insurance agent
- Copies of your insurance policies
- Credit card and bank account numbers
- Registrations, contracts, deeds, wills, and titles
- An ATM card and some cash
- Photo IDs, passports, Social Security cards, and immunization records
- Family records (birth, marriage, and death certificates)
- Prescriptions for medications
- Other key contact numbers (doctors, friends, family, coworkers)
