Update Your Browser and Browse Happy

As I wrote last spring, it is important to update your web browser when new versions become available. Using an outdated browser can not only slow your online experience, it can also make your computer more vulnerable to viruses and other dangers. A simple way to check if your browser is up to date is to visit Browse Happy. Browse Happy lists the five most commonly used browsers, the latest version of each, and links you to the download for the latest version.

There is another simple way to determine what browser you're using; visit WhatBrowser.orgWhat Browser is a Google site that detects what browser you're using and displays that information right on the page in front of you.

Especially if you're doing some online Black Friday shopping today, please make sure your browser is up to date.

H/T to Doug Peterson for the Browse Happy link.
