Hi everyone,
I have been using my Mac with Adobe design software for quite a few years and my Chrome is out of date. Some years ago I was told that updating the browser may cause problems for my software and stopped updating for some time as I have a lot of software I want to look after. It would be good to update it though as I am not able to access certain websites. I wondered if anyone has an opinion or has updated chrome or safari and have software and have not noticed any issues.
Thanks.

Hmm... You could leave your Chrome alone for now and use Firefox instead for awhile. Update Firefox to the latest version and see how it goes. If Firefox works, then you don't have to worry about updating Chrome. So long as Firefox is working then if Chrome causes issues after you upgrade it you can just delete Chrome.

I'm not a browser expert, but my guess is that you should be able to update both these browsers to the latest version without difficulty. At least that's been my experience.

If you mention what machine and OS you are using Cory or someone else may be able to offer better advice.

Back up your system thoroughly in a bootable form, and update away. If you have problems, just recover your old system. This will take a little machine time, but not your time.
