Our second Computing Workshop was held on Wednesday afternoon, at Cranberry Moss Community Centre. The time flew in and before we knew it, we were starting to pack up and head for home. We managed to sort out a few online issues (and more) that some of the sisters were having – but you’ve got to give credit to our oldest trainee – 90 years old and taking computing lessons. Well done Peggy!
If you are running an old browser on your computer, then you could be in danger of putting your computer at risk. Old and outdated browsers have security issues and don’t follow new web development standards.
It has been reported this month that Google has actively been trying to discourage people who are using out-of-date browsers by showing old versions of their web page. The change was made to encourage people to update their browsers.
Another issue that you might find is that modern websites (such as Family Search) will post a notice at the top of the page informing you that your browser is not fully supported. This can mean that you will not be able to access all of the features offered by the site, or the site may load slower than expected.
Is your browser up-to-date?
If you’re not sure then visit this link (Google recommended): What Browser. There are many first class browsers for you to choose from. You should have at least two on your computer, one to be used as backup in case the other is experiencing technical problems.
If you’re not sure how to update your browser, or install another browser, we have a number of members who can help you. Just let us know and we’ll do what we can. 🙂
