NYU's Recommended Browsers

Google Chrome and Safari are the most popular and widely supported browsers.

Benefits of Upgrading to a Modern Browser

  • Security
    Newer browsers protect you better from scams, viruses, trojans, phishing, and other threats. Because the software is still supported and regularly updated, they are able to address security issues as they arise.
  • Speed
    Every new browser generation improves the speed of the user experience.
  • Compatibility
    Websites using new technology will be displayed more accurately if you are using an updated browser.
  • Comfort & Better Experience
    With new features, extensions, and better customization, you will have a more comfortable web experience.
  • Advancing the Web
    Outdated browsers pose a number of security threats, slow the advancement of internet technology, and cost companies time and money in man hours for developers.

Updating is easy, it takes just a few minutes, and is free.
