Why we created this tool
For less tech savvy people, figuring out the exact version of their plug-ins used, and how to update their browser can be difficult and quite daunting. An out-of-date version of a browser can significantly impact the bottom line of a business (for instance, browser incompatibilities can result in website issues that will negatively affect the user/customer experience).
Instead of taking on the mammoth task of optimizing content and tweaking website design for old browser versions, why not recommend to customers or prospects to quickly update their browsers via this page? Our tool will help your visitors update their browsers to the latest version in a matter of minutes.
Benefits of using the browser update tool
A browser update tool may not seem like a big deal to many people, but the benefits of using such a user-friendly and straightforward instrument are immeasurable, including:
- Improve technical support and web development efforts.
- Encourage users to abandon old browsers.
- Improve online security and gain access to new and exciting features.
- Help improve the web by supporting open-source software projects (like browsers).
Internet users who navigate the web with older browsers usually do not oppose updating; rather, in most situations they do not appreciate the need to perform a browser update, or they simply haven’t heard of the existence of a newer version or don’t know how to update their browser. It’s your job to remind and encourage them to upgrade browser versions.

What is the most popular browser?
Statistics can be misleading, so you should take this information with a grain of salt. Having said that, based on two different statistics, Google Chrome is considered the most popular browser. The only difference between the two studies can be seen in the percentages. According to a W3Schools November 2015 statistic, Chrome is the most used browser (67.4%), followed by Firefox (19.2%), Internet Explorer (6.8%), Safari (3.9%) and Opera (1.5%). The information gathered by the US Federal Government is very different from that of W3Schools. According to this report, Chrome is still in the leading position but at a much reduced level of 34.7%, followed by Internet Explorer (28.3%), Safari (20.3%) and Firefox (11%).
Why did you list only five browsers?
The purpose of this tool isn’t to cover all the available browsers. It represents a simplified solution for less tech savvy people who wish to update their browsers. Because Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Opera are used by over 94% of Internet users, we decided to only include them.
