The "browser" is the software you are using right now to view this page (e.g. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox). There are many different browsers available for computers of all platforms; most are free, and some work better than others.
The browser's job is to display pages as they were designed. A page can look very different when viewed with different browsers. This can cause problems when browsing the Internet, especially with older browsers that may not be up to speed with the current state of the web.
Your browser does not report itself as one of the major ones (AOL, Internet Explorer, Lynx, Netscape, Opera, WebTV), so we assume you know what you're doing. LiteracyLink is developed for full compliance with W3C standards, so as long as your browser can handle syntatically valid HTML, you should be fine.
We recommend that you upgrade to a newer, safer version that will support the features you need for most current websites and provide protection with updated security patches. You can download a FREE version of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox now. Click the link below to go to the official website for one of these browsers and follow the instructions.
