Something about BTC makes people forget previous experience.  Try to keep it with you. 

Happy Trails!

If there's one thing blocking widespread adoption, it's this.

Security is hard to achieve...Keep it on your computer, offline.

How does it matter, if you know the institution, if it is a big company, even if it is a legitimate financial business?
Look at Cyprus, they got it all there.

My standard password + My throwaway password (backwards, all caps) + &#$%@ + First two sentences of first paragraph of page 19 of my favorite book (include all capitalization and punctuation) + My wife's mother's middle name + My son's favorite superhero + My favorite number times 8734 + food my wife hates (backwards, all caps) + 9-digit number stored with my paper will + 10-character password stored in my safety deposit box + . . . .

Great password formula. I've been generating random ones, but this way makes it feasible to actually remember the damn thing.

Figure there's no better place to ask - the surf4bitcoin.com site (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=150753.msg1601882#msg1601882) runs off of a Chrome/Firefox plugin that states it will have access to all of your web activity. 

Bad idea to install??

Agree with the main points.  In general this applies to any sort of transaction not even just with bit coins
