TurboTax Online interferes with you less since it is updated automatically on the file server that hosts the software, so you never get pop-ups prompting you to perform time wasting updates that can be tedious and very interruptive to your tax preparation process.
However, online tax filers should be careful using public computers, such as those found in coffee shops or libraries. If you must use a public computer to prepare your tax return, be entirely sure that the network you are on is not being monitored by another computer, and make sure you log off and close the browser window prior to leaving the computer so that no one using the computer after you can access to your account.
