How to Upgrade Your Web Browser

A web browser is a software program used to enable computers for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web (www) including Web pages, images, video and other files. There are several types of browsers but the one thing they have in common is that they carry out the same function; they transfer hypertext. Surfing the Web on an old browser can be a lot like running a steam engine along the tracks of a bullet train--it may still work, but it doesn't take advantage of the speed and security of the new technology. Every time you upgrade your Web browser, you'll find that it is even more customizable, much faster and even more secure. With every upgrade, you'll be able to benefit from better service and quick, easy updates. Ignoring updates can actually leave you vulnerable to security breaches.
