    Can't think of any of the major ones that wouldn't work...they're just websites you need to access to execute trades.

    I've used Ameritrade for a decade now and been very happy.

    Not much of a reason to use IE...it was last updated six years ago and Microsoft has ceased supporting it. And it's a giant security hole.

    Firefox or Safari is just personal preference...Ameritrade's website is fine on either one.

    I use Fidelity with Safari and have never had any issues.

    I really doubt you will have problems with any of the major brokers.

    Safe? Not necessarily...it's a stock, and a tech stock at that. And one that's seen a huge run-up over the last few years.

    You don't have to go that far back in history to find the day that Apple's stock price dropped by 50% in one day. Could that happen again? Sure, but those of us who own Apple stock certainly hope and think it won't.

    A site full of Apple enthusiasts isn't really the best place to look for investment advice.
