With the goal of making your visit to Chapman's various websites an informative, easy and visually pleasing experience, we are requesting viewers to upgrade their Internet browsers. Keeping up-to-date with your Internet browser allows you to see websites as they were intended, with all the latest functionality and visual elements. Below are just some of the benefits of upgrading your browser.
Benefits of Upgrading Your Internet Browser
With every upgrade comes better security features to protect you against scams, viruses, trojans, phishing and other threats. The creators of these threats are targeting weaknesses in older browsers, so upgrading makes this process more difficult.
With the addition of new interactive and dynamic elements to websites, a browser needs to update its features to accommodate. This will improve the speed and as a result will de-stress your life. It's good for you!
As noted above with new features being develop every day for the web, upgrading will allow new technology to be displayed correctly.
Today, we are past the point of a browser just being a browser. Latest options allow for extensions and better customizability, making your web-experience more comfortable.
How Do I Update?
It's easy! The following links will lead you to a page to either download your browser of choice or with instructions on how to upgrade.
- Firefox: Upgrade or Download

Chapman suggests using the latest version of Firefox. Unlike Internet Explorer, these browser have been optimized using general web standards and will view most website with clarity. Internet Explorer uses their own set of rules, so many websites do not cater to this browser. That being said the latest version if Internet Explorer is more compatible.
