If you're looking for a safe and easy software wallet, i'd advise you to use something like Electrum, which offers both security ( only you have access over your private keys), and all the functionality the bitcoin protocol currently has to offer. ( Segwit, RBF, HD wallets etc.) Something a wallet like blockchain.info doesn't offer.

With the current bitcoin price, It may be better for you to invest in a Ledger nano S or Trezor If you have anything above 1 BTC.

To save Bitcoin for long term is using Trezor hardware wallet.

If you are thinking about trading your BTC you'll need an exchange wallet. My favorite exchanges for bitcoin beginners are Coinbase, Gemini, GDAX, Bitstamp, and CoinMama.

I don't think so you are going to buy a hardware wallet or willing to download desktop wallet. You need easy wallet I can suggest blockchain or coinbase they both has mobile apps as well.

For high-security wallet, you better using Ledger nano or Trezor https://trezor.io . It has full modules and documentation how to using it inside or you can using Blockchain web wallet for other alternatives.

I agree with all of the above.
* Buy a Ledger Nano S
* Buy a TREZOR
The price for them is less than $ 100

It depends on the amount of BTC you have. For small amounts an online wallet may be enough. Electrum (https://electrum.org/) is an excellent desktop wallet for something more serious. If you have 1 BTC or more, you should consider a hardware wallet (Ledger or Trezor) or cold storage.

Best choice for you will be a safe hardware wallet like Ledger Nano S or Trezor, but i prefer the first one. You can hold lots of coins there, for example: BTC,BCC,NEO,LTC,STRATIS,ETH,ETC,every ERC20 token and many other coins.

I personally used coinbase and blockchain.info online wallets. But the most secure ones are hardware wallets.  TREZOR is a good hardware wallets. if you are trading it is better keep your bitcoin in secure exchange like binance,bittrex ,polonix etc to avoid account to account transaction fee.

DO NOT DO THE ABOVE....

Unless you own your private key you do not own your bitcoin.

Hardware wallets and paper wallets for cold storage, leaving funds on an exchange is risky.  MTGOX, BTC-E  lots of exchanges have gone down.. one of my RL friends lost out 300BTC on the MTGOX fiasco..

get yourself a ledger nano S.. simple to use and safe as houses.

There's no direct access to your private keys, no added functionality such as double spending in the form of replace-by-fees, and blockchain.info could change their source code at any moment, which could possibly compromise your ( encrypted ) private keys/ seeds/ to them.

If you are looking for safe as well as easy wallet then you can go with hardware wallet like Trezor. It has passed many tests even the hackathon so you won't have to worry about your funds If you are using that wallet. Recently I had a discussion with the vice president of domestic Bitcoin exchange and he said that "Even I uses hardware wallet in order to store his funds and I recommend others to use the offline methods of storing Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies." However, if you are not willing to use hardware wallet then you can use a securely generated paper wallet and store your funds there.

Any recommendations for storing various AltCoins
Want to take them off the exchanges and try and keep them altogether in one wallet preferably!

I'd suggest something like Exodus or Jaxx (although jaxx has had some issues in the past.), if you're going to store on your desktop.

If you're going to store them on a android / iOS device, i'd advise something like Coinomi, which supports bitcoin and a whole lot of other coins, ( over 200).

That is not true. Blockchain.info is web-based, but it gives you, and only you, access to the private keys.

Correct, you have the private keys with Blockchain.info.

If you want to trade regularly, I'd advice keeping some coins with your chosen exchange, for example coinbase, as there is cost involved transferring between wallets.
