Internet Explorer 6 Update Warning

  • Why am I seeing a message stating that ShareInvestor.com will be "phasing out support" for my browser?

    You're seeing this message as you are currently viewing ShareInvestor.com on Internet Explorer 6 (IE6). You need to upgrade your browser in order to take advantage of new features that will be released in the future.

  • Why should I upgrade to a modern browser?

    IE6 can negatively impact your online experience, particularly your online safety. In general, upgrading to a modern browser is important for three reasons:

    Security - Old browsers typically aren’t updated with the latest security fixes and they are open to attacks. Browser vulnerabilities can lead to stolen passwords and having malicious software loaded secretly onto your computer. A modern browser helps guard against security threats like phishing and malware.

    Performance - Only modern browsers have the speed improvements that let you load and interact with web pages quickly.

    Features - Many of the latest features on today’s websites won't work with old browsers as they do not support the latest web standards like HTML5 and CSS3.

  • Why are we making this change?

    IE6 is a last-generation browser. This means that IE6 cannot provide the same level of web experience that modern browsers can. Supporting IE6 means we are forced to design websites to work on the old technologies using inefficient work-arounds instead of making use of the next generation of useful technologies to deliver innovative and better performance websites. We want to make sure the experience is the best it can be for the vast majority of our customers, and continuing to support IE6 holds us back.

  • If I don't upgrade my browser, what will occur?

    As we build and roll out newer features, those features will be built for the speed and richness of the latest browsers. If you don't upgrade to a modern browser and continue using IE6, it may lead to degraded performance and errors when you surf our website.

  • How do I upgrade my browser?

    It will only take a moment to upgrade to a modern browser. Visit the browser's website and download the most recent version of the browser that's available. You'll then be prompted with instructions on how to install and use the new browser.

  • Which browser is the best for surfing ShareInvestor.com at the moment?

    ShareInvestor.com will perform well on every modern browser. This includes the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.
