Download or upgrade your web browser

Some websites and online applications require recent browsers in order to work properly, so you may be prompted to download a new browser or upgrade your browser from time to time.

Newer browsers provide additional features and benefits such as web surfing security, tabbed browsing and faster web page uploads - to name a few. You can also make sure all other plugins are up-to-date by updating your plugins.

Note: If using Google Chrome, Google Chrome will automatically upgrade whenever a new version is detected, requiring no action on your end.
