“When should I upgrade my web browser?”

If you browse the web with Internet Explorer, you should be using the most current version, which is Internet Explorer 9. It’s free and easy to upgrade. We suggest that you do it now.

Download Internet Explorer 9.

Internet Explorer 9 includes Tracking Protection, SmartScreen Filter with Application Reputation, and other features that help protect against viruses, fraud, and privacy thieves.

According to software maker Net Applications, Internet Explorer’s popularity has been increasing, while other browsers popularity decreases.
