Why Should You Upgrade Your Browser?

May 23, 2013

Did you know that the web browser you use affects the way you interact with sites like Realtor.org?

Here are the three best reasons to run the newest version of your preferred browser on your computer:

  1. Security. As browser manufacturers like Microsoft, Google, and Apple update browsers, they’ll start phasing out support for older ones. That means that the newest browser versions are going to better protect you from vulnerabilities and viruses, even if you have an anti-virus program.
  2. Better function. Web authors – like those of us at the National Association of REALTORS® – design web sites to be viewed with modern browsers. We’ve built Realtor.org to work with a vast array of browsers and versions, but your best experience will be with the most recent browser version.
  3. It’s free. If you’re using a common browser like Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera, upgrading to the newest version will always be free.
