Hi, This is my first posting on these boards..But I have posted on another board, AOL Technical Topics, Have also emailed AOL, & TalkTalk, and have had lengthy telephone discussions all to no avail, so I will not be disappointed if no one on these boards can answer my query, mainly because not many people use the AOL software...OK, here goes:- AOL is a free browser software, it is owned by TalkTalk but during the past week AOL UK company name has changed to Oath Inc. A digital and mobile media company.
The AOL Home Page has its own browser as well as an 'in house' email client, among other bits & bobs unique to AOL.. The browser being used is Google Chrome version 43 which is way out of date, the latest version is 57. Not only does this pose a security risk, but a number of web pages either do not open because it is so out of date, or makes mention that not all the content of their web page is available because it is out of date.
Before anyone says "why do you use AOL software? Its out of date, creaking at the seams, there are much better browser's out there"...My answer is, I have a contract with TT which is bundled with AOL...And I do have 'stand alone' browsers such as IE, Firefox, and Google which are all kept up to date, I do have to use now and again.
So why does TT AOL Oath offer this free software to anyone, when it is security risk.? Why don't they update, in my opinion it would probably be free from Google...
