Club PCs: migrating to Chrome

Our club PCs have the latest version of Windows Internet Explorer. But some sites such as Family Search have messages saying it’s no longer supported, while others like Billion Graves just don’t behave properly. So we will be switching over to Chrome. The desktop shortcuts for the two websites mentioned now launch Chrome instead of IE. Eventually Chrome will be used for everything but I prefer to start gradually in case there are problems.

Logging into your personal Google account via Chrome from a public computer is generally a bad idea, and the club computers are semi-public, so don’t do that!

You do have to log in at Family Search. This was a change made to the website and has nothing to do with the browser. It’s best to log out again when you’re finished. But not as important, because Family Search just knows your tree, while Google knows everything about you.  🙂
