What you can do to have the best browsing experience possible:

  • Make sure you have the latest version of your favorite browser. You can check this from your browsers’ website.
  • If possible, ensure that your browser is set to auto-update. As new patches are available, your browser will install them automatically. This helps to protect your computer from the latest viruses and attacks that exploit browsers and encryption.
