In all outdated browsers you are also opening yourself up to security vulnerabilities, which could compromise your computer.This is especially true in older versions of Internet Explorer. For Example If you have Internet Explorer 9 or lower, you should upgrade.
Now Let me tell you, why you exactly need to update your browsers. There are major four reasons on which we will discuss.
1. Website Compatibility :
New website technologies are often only supported by newer browsers. As businesses updated their websites utilizing these new web technologies, older browsers will not function properly and will not be able to display parts of the website.
2. Security Risks :
A compromised web browser could make your personal information public. A compromised system could permit the download of key logging software, which could record and transmit any data that you type. More about keyloggers here. Vulnerable browsers may also facilitate the download of spyware that can capture passwords, credit card numbers and screenshots to pass along to hackers.
3. A Faster and More Responsive Browsing Experience :
Every web page that loads in a browser triggers it to perform a number of different tasks. One of these tasks is loading component files. These files include images, programming scripts, and other resources that help improve the look and functionality of the website you’re visiting. Old browsers do not perform these tasks with the same speed as new browsers. This makes your experience on the Web considerably slower, and can sometimes cause your browser to crash or freeze.
4. Security Issues Affect Mac and Windows Users :
Browser vulnerabilities affect both PC and Mac computers. In May of 2011, Firefox released a new version of its browser to resolve a security flaw, which could have allowed hackers to take control of computers running Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OSX.
