Your Browser Is Too Old

We use a web browser to access the web pages on a system. Without a web browser, we cannot view or access any website. That is why we might installed some programs that help us to access those web of them is Internet explorer, a Web browser made by Microsoft.

Over the past 17 years, this has been the most popular Web browser, which is currently at version 9, and version 10 is supposed to be officially released sometime this year. But I am sure many of you are not using IE9—most Web users that use Microsoft’s browser are still using a less stable, insecure, slow version of IE.

So we suggest you upgrade to a different browser. To help you upgrade, we recommend some tips for you to consider.

But before we start to explore other browsers, here we will discuss reasons why older browsers like IE7 and IE8 aren’t as good.

What’s wrong with Old Browsers?

  • Old browsers (especially Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, and 8) are less stable, and much more vulnerable to viruses, spyware, malware, and other security issues.

Second, they are very slow. As Web page has to perform a number of different tasks to improve the website functionality. Old browsers do not perform these tasks with the same speed as new browsers. This may disturb your user experience and can sometimes cause your browser to crash or freeze.


Third, is their display capabilities are very limited. For example, in an older browser, in order to show a simple animation, the person creating the website  needs a lot of extra programming code (called JavaScript) ultimately the page will take much longer to load, thus harming your experience on that website. New browsers support new Web technologies (like HTML5 and CSS3).

  • Fourth, Websites will neither look nor function in the same way in old browsers like IE8.

New Browser Options

Google Chrome

In May 2012, it has become the most popular browser in the world (compared to IE, all versions combined). Chrome was first released in 2008.

Mozilla Firefox

Firefox has been the main competitor to Internet Explorer since the mid-2000’s.


Opera isn’t used as much, but it has been around since the mid-90s. Opera has always been at the forefront of browser innovation and supports many of the latest technologies and features that make websites faster and more feature-rich.

Apple’s Safari
This is the same browser that’s commonly used on iPhones and iPads. Safari’s features are very similar to Google’s Chrome and has been around since 2003.

Why Are New Browsers Better?

The browsers listed above have a number of advantages over older browsers, including:

  • Far fewer instances of crashing or freezing.
  • Much more secure from a virus, malware, and browser-hijacking attacks.
