You Don’t Need Admin Access to Use a Modern Browser
As we all know, Internet Explorer 6 is completely obsolete. However, more than 1 in 10 web users are still using it.
Most of those users are forced to stay with IE6 by corporate policies. The government, especially, is notorious for providing systems that only work with IE6, and forcing all their users to stay with it.
Company web users everywhere are frustrated and upset by all this, especially as many of the external sites they visit no longer support IE6. But they don’t have admin access to their PCs, so they think they can’t use another browser. And so IE6 staggers on.
What many of these users may not realise is that neither Firefox nor Google Chrome need admin access for installation.
If you are a corporate user reading this in IE6, you could download and install Google Chrome or Firefox right now and start using it.
You can download Google Chrome here.
You can download Firefox here.
What’s more, both these browsers can be installed on your PC at the same time as IE6. So you can go on using IE6 for your old company applications that only support IE6, and use one of those modern browsers for everything else.
Be subversive! Use a modern browser today!
(Note: I haven’t suggested those corporate users upgrade to the current Internet Explorer version, because you can’t install the current version of Internet Explorer, which is version 9, alongside IE6. Also, you need admin rights to install IE anyway.)
