Should I upgrade if I am using IE 8,9 or 10?
In an ideal world - absolutely yes. Having an unsupported / unpatched browser is a very bad idea.
However things you need to consider
- You will need to talk to your IT company first.
- Consider and discuss if there any legacy systems that you use (these may not work in new browsers)
- If your Content Management System (CMS) is old, upgrades may be required (by your web developer) so these work in newer browsers (if your site is built with us - please contact us to discuss options).
Browser upgrade options
You can upgrade to either Internet Explorer 11, or Microsoft Edge.
Other browsers you could also consider are Chrome (our favourite here at TMD) or Firefox.
