TROUBLESHOOTING III

On one of my previous entries, we spoke about the basics when you are getting good internet signal but can not pull up a web site. Now, Let me talk about your browser.

Your browser works like a middle person between your computer and your internet. The end result, of course, is surfing to the internet. Your browser is how your computer recognizes the signal from your internet provider. This is one of the applications included in your computer. Example of browser is Internet Explorer. It has different versions. We have Internet Explorer version 6 (IE6) and Version 7 (IE7) and Version 8 (IE8) : Windows Vista is defaulted to IE7. Another example of a browser is Mozilla Firefox. The most recent version of Mozilla is Mozilla 3.5: You may download this browser in your computer by going to www.mozilla.com. It is free and user friendly. How do you check what browser you are using? If you are curious you can check this out;

You can just check what icon are you clicking when you go to the internet. This is the easiest way to determine what browser you are using. Is it a letter “e” icon? You are using Internet Explorer. Are you clicking a rounder orange icon? You are using Mozilla Firefox: Would you like to know what version you have? If you are curious you may;

1. Pull up a web page
2. Click on Help Tab
3. Click on “About Internet Explorer” or “ About Mozilla Firefox”, which ever
you see. You will now determine what version of browser you have.

This is what you will see when you check the version of your Internet Explorer:
This is your icon if you are using Internet Explorer: (very similar to this)


This is what your web page would look like if you are using Mozilla Firefox:



This is your icon if you are using Mozilla Firefox;

Do you know what browser you have? Have a great day!!
