^^ nice.

for a pro you could say ease of finding info you need.
for cons you could say the info you find might not be lagit. also viruses, spyware hackers and a buch of other crap can get in and eff you. no matter how good of an anti-virus you have.

It's opinions, and lecturers in the UK will not want to see that in the pro's part, you wil get marked down for it..
