Tech Tip: Browser Updates for Security
What version is your web browser?  Out of date web browsers can put your entire computer at risk!  Update to Chrome 22, Firefox 16, and Safari 6 for the most secure, stable, and functional browsing.  On your personally owned computer, update to Internet Explorer 9, but leave your Bucknell owned computer on version 8, which is required for some university web sites.  Not sure how to update your browsers?  Start by upgrading Mozilla Firefox to the current version today!
