Say Goodbye to Internet Explorer (And What This Means For Your Website)

Website 0 Comments

Microsoft announced that it is issuing an “end of life” upgrade for their browser, Internet Explorer. The browser has been struggling to keep up with competitors like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari for Mac, so Microsoft is pushing users to upgrade to the newest version, Internet Explorer 11, or their own browser, called Edge.

Internet Explorer users won’t lose the browser off their computer, but as of January 12, 2016, Microsoft has stopped upgrading it, meaning that it will be more susceptible to bugs and malware.

How This May Affect Your Website

We want to warn our clients about this upcoming change because if you are using an outdated version of Internet Explorer, you may start to notice images not aligning correctly and breaks in your site. If you are noticing any unusual issues using an out-dated browser such as Internet Explorer, try switching to a more up-to-date browser. Our Lead User Experience Designer, Raudel Enrique, suggests using Google Chrome because it stays current and displays all of our clients’ websites properly. (Download Google Chrome in a few simple steps here).

Raudel also assures clients that all of our Exclusive Themes are built to be displayed on many different browsers, such as Safari, Chrome, Edge, and Mozilla Firefox. Before we take a client’s website live, we test to ensure it is optimized for all different screen sizes and browsers.

The end of Internet Explorer is a step in the direction of promoting new technology and more powerful browsers. Here at FMG Suite, we make great looking websites that function properly across different browsers and platforms and test them extensively to make sure that everything displays properly.

Our Vice President of Creative, Brandon Brown, explains that although Internet Explorer’s older versions will forgo updates, we will continue to make sure that all of our sites render correctly as long as the browser is used by our clients. If advisors are worried that their site will no longer work on older versions of browsers, they should know that we will continue to monitor the most used browsers until they become completely obsolete.

FMG Suite’s development team is always keeping up with the data regarding our advisors’ sites. Rest assured, if you have a site with FMG, we do everything we can to make sure it is displayed properly.

"...while they can’t turn back the clock and address these issues beforehand - such as increasing their spouse’s life insurance or saving more - there are ways to take control and feel more confident in their future.
When working with widows, there are a few first steps I recommend taking:

1. Get Organized
Whether or not you handled all of your family’s finances, some, or none, the first step is to organize your financial documents. Before you can determine how to budget and what steps to take, you have to first understand where you stand financially. If you are having trouble translating your investment account statements, a financial advisor can help you understand what your documents mean. You’ll want to copy and safeguard your important documents and review life insurance policies with a trusted advisor.

2. Budget for a Single Income
More than half of widows have difficulty adjusting to a single income. This may because they haven’t reevaluated their bills and expenses and adjusted..."

Unique Articles in Your Voice

"...More than likely, you have a clear understanding of your relationship with your doctor or your dentist. You pay a fee and, in return, you receive a service, including advice and recommendations based on your individual situation. It would make sense then for your relationship with your financial advisor to be the same; but for many, that’s not the case.

At Financial Guideposts, we’ve noticed a trend: that the general public does not understand the relationship they have with their financial advisor. We want to change that. We believe there are two critical aspects you should understand when working with a financial advisor: how he or she gets paid and what services he or she provides..."
