All About Your Browser…

Whatever browser you use, you need to make sure you’re using the latest, most secure version. You can look under “Help”, “About”, and it will give your browser version but that’s about all you’ll see. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to check your browser to make sure you’re using the latest version, to update it if it were not, PLUS see if your Flash, Java, and JavaScript are enabled or disable and if they are all up-to-date. (JavaScript should normally be enabled; Java should not.)

Plus you can view some other system information including your IP address and your approximate location. And if you like, you can share this information with anyone including legitimate support folks – for instance us! The site provides you a link if you want share your browser/PC info with someone else, but it’s totally up to you.

NOTE: We do not advocate using the sending of information to anyone.  The “Share your system info with tech support” you see on this site is poorly worded and can lead to a lot of speculation, particularly tech support scams. However this site does not offer any tech support services. The intent, we think, was to inform you that you can share this information with anyone you want, for instance if someone you trust is working on you computer you could share this info with them. Although, it’s poorly worded, it is not a come-on for a tech support service. Basically you can and should ignore it. And if you see ads on the page for tech support, ignore those for sure.
