Nervous about accepting computer updates? Do you ignore them and hope they’ll go away? Have you noticed things look different on your computer than on others? Maybe you surfed better when the computer was younger.

If your browser is out of date, you aren’t alone and you’re being cheated out of all the web has to offer.

Current versions are: Internet Explorer 8.06 or 9 (brand new still in testing) and Firefox 3.6.15 or higher. *March 23, update: Firefox now 4.0

Now, for the fix.
