Need a reason to upgrade your browser? How about doing it to fight world hunger?
In honor of Hunger Action Month, Microsoft has extended their “Browser for the Better” campaign through September. The Browser for the Better campaign is intended to make it easy for people to make a real difference.
How You Can Make a Difference
For each instance of someone upgrading their Internet Explorer from version 6 to version 8 via www.browserforthebetter.com (a free upgrade), Microsoft will donate funds to provide 8 meals through Feeding America. And during September, Microsoft will double their donation to provide 16 meals.
How do you find out if you have Internet Explorer 6?
Open Internet Explorer (Yes, click the blue e)
In the top menu bar, click “help”
Then, click About Internet Explorer
The resulting pop-up window will read Version:6.x.xxxx.xxxxx
Feel good because you just provided 16 meals for the hungry
