In a previous #cliotraining Tuesday Tip, we went over clearing your Web browser’s cache in order to improve performance and clear out some space on your hard drive.
Another important Web browser maintenance item is making sure you update it to the latest version. Using the most up-to-date version of your browser is important for a number reasons, including:
- Better compatibility with technology and websites.
- Faster speed.
- Better security features.
- Bonus features like tabbed browsing and extensions.
Some Web browsers, like Firefox, will prompt you to update. Others are more subtle, like Chrome, which displays as orange dot underneath the wrench icon in the top right-hand corner of the browser window.
If you don’t want to wait for cues, you can also check if you are using the current version of your browser and manually update, if necessary.
Do you have a #cliotraining tip to share? Let us know, we’d love to hear them!
