Is Your Browser Is Too Old?
Everyone that uses Web pages on a computer uses a Web browser. This is how you access sites like Facebook and Twitter. Many people commonly use the program that opens when you click the big blue “e” icon on your desktop. The “e” icon is not a shortcut to a generic “internet”. The “e” is a Web browser made by Microsoft, called “Internet Explorer” or “IE”. IE has been around for over 17 years. At one point the most popular Web browser, and it may have even been the best browser you could use. However, this is not true anymore.
Internet Explorer is an old browser, which makes sites load very slow. This can sometimes cause your browser to crash or freeze. IE also has very limited display capabilities. This means a lot of modern websites will not show up the way you intended in IE.
Here are a few of the better browsers:
Google Chrome (A favorite of mine, and currently the most popular browser)
These browsers have a number of advantages over IE, including:
- Fewer instances of crashing or freezing
- Much more secure from viruses
- Larger page-viewing area.
- A large variety of useful optional plugins
- New browsers will automatically update to the latest version
There are many more reasons to upgrade your old browser and start using something new and up-to-date. Your experience on the Web will be infinitely better. A new browser will allow your experience to be safer, faster, and much more beautiful.
