It’s always a good idea to keep web browsers up to date as flaws are fixed and new features to improve your web experience are added. Outdated browsers can pose security risks such as the numerous exploits that are out there for Internet Explorer 6.

Internet Explorer:

Help -> About Internet Explorer
The best way to check for Internet Explorer updates is to check via the windows update tool.

Firefox:

Help -> About Mozilla Firefox
A nice feature that’s in Firefox is that when you go to check the version, it will automatically search for an update for you.

Google Chrome:

Click the Spanner in the top right corner -> About Google Chrome.
A nice feature that’s in Chrome is that when you go to check the version, it will automatically search for an update for you.

Opera:

Help -> About Opera
If you want to update Opera the update feature is in Help -> Check for Updates


If you find that you can’t find the help menu, press the alt key while in your browser and it should unveil a toolbar.
