Updating my browser
For most Internet users, your browser is your window to the Web.
You use it to navigate to Web sites, and it displays those sites for you, allowing you to follow links and explore everything the web has to offer.
You can also check for Safari updates by looking at the "Software Updates" list from the operating system's Apple menu.
With automatic updates and notifications, keeping your Internet browser up to date has never been easier, so you should always have the latest security fixes and features for your favorite browser.
Once you've got your browser of choice, keeping it updated is even easier.
Internet Explorer (IE) updates are included as part of Windows system updates, so as long as you keep Windows updated, so is IE.
There are many different browsers available, but four of them account for over 95 percent of all browsers in use today: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari [source: Stat Counter].
By default, your Internet browser will update automatically; however, you can also check for and install browser updates manually. You should do some research on the benefits of each browser to decide which one would be ideal for you.
Regular updates to your browser fix security problems when they are detected, and make your computer safer from those types of attacks. Internet Explorer comes pre-installed with Windows, and Safari comes with Apple operating systems.
Firefox and Chrome can be downloaded and installed by visiting their respective Web sites (using another browser).
As long as you are regularly installing the latest Windows updates from Microsoft, you should have the latest version of Internet Explorer.
On an Android tablet or phone, the Chrome browser should automatically get updated.
