If you have been a regular visitor of our NCL website for any length of time, you know by now we are not the biggest fans of Microsoft Windows. The list of why is way too long to go into here. It’s why we have been an all MAC shop for over a decade. You just don’t have the issues found in Windows. But we are realists, and know it’s the majority operating system and most people have MS machines currently, though that is changing. When you buy that machine, you get the default Internet Explorer web browser. With regular updates to the OS software you can view and surf any website with no problem.
In the past few days some readers of this site report funny looking displays when viewing on IE browsers. Not many, only a hand full, but some people do. This is caused from the users not keeping their OS updates current. Our site uses all kinds coding and software products to make all of the displays work. For example, Flash is just one of many. If you don’t have that update or plugin on your computer, you won’t see some of the features on our site. Or they won’t display properly. It’s not just the case here, but on countless sites across the web.
If you like using IE to browse the internet, then be sure to keep it and your operating system updated. It’s the safe thing to do as well, since your security updates from Microsoft come down in those updates too. That keeps your computer from being totally vulnerable.
For the best browsing experience on our site and thousands of others, we suggest Firefox browser from Mozilla. Whether you use Windows or MAC, it’s by far a superior browser to the standard ones as part of either OS. There are many other good ones too, but that’s one we know works the best on our site.
Again, if you insist on using the MS IE browser, be sure it’s up to date or you won’t see things correctly in your browser, not only here, but on countless sites across the web.
