Where did you hear about this...and why in the world would they do this? Many people use older browsers...and by the way, Chrome is not an older browser. They are constantly updating.
I received an email about it yesterday to the effect that my browser was not compliant with their security standards. They mean older versions of browsers. I've noticed websites are slowly becoming inaccessible from or not working properly with older versions of browsers (e.g. scrolling in Google Analytics not working properly with Chrome, but ok in Firefox).
You can check the details here:

But for those of you still using Vista, the ESR edition of Firefox passes the compliance test, for the moment anyway.
If you have Windows 10, Internet Explorer 11 is automatically installed with it and that passes the PayPal test.
Chrome usually updates itself and is definitely a modern browser. Firefox too.
Interesting that PayPal sent an email. Companies don't usually send such emails they state it on their website when you try to login.
It definitely wasn't a phishing email, because it had my name and the info link was a paypal.com one.
Presumably the fact that my browser version is old, triggered the sending of the email.
The odd thing is the email said the browser isn't compliant but when I did the check, it tested out ok.
If I were you I'd call Paypal and make sure this email was legit. It sounds fishy to me.

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

So, there's this 'sort of new' utility labeled "graph" at the top of the 'my account' page where all our hubs are listed.I tried it out the first time I saw it, and it was rather interesting. However, that is the only time it ever worked. Now, it does not load, and just sits...

While using Firefox, I'm trying to add my image to my profile. The image is uploaded, but the popup asking me to crop the image doesn't scroll with the page and can't be moved in the window. The result is that I cant crop my photo properly. (ie: I cant drag all the way to the bottom right of where...

Which browser works best for HubPages? I would like to build more Hubs, but my Chrome browser doesn't work too well on HubPages. Firefox seems to work fine on HubPages, but not so much on other sites. What browser do you guys recommend for HubPages?

Did HP do an update around 4:00 PM, 3/19/13?Ctrl+, slide-right now chops off content and shows white space instead. Happens to me only on this site.Us visually-impaired folks kind of need that.
