    How to optimize your experience on the new BYC


    You can optimize your experience here by making sure that you are on the latest version of your browser. Don't know what you're using? PM a mod and we can help you figure it out! Many of the speed complaints can be fixed simply by updating your browser.


    Example: One user complained speeds were horrible and was using Firefox 5.0. The newest version is 9.0. That's like an 80 year old and a 16 year old having a race!

    This system is super fast using Chrome and the newest version of Firefox. Internet explorer should be at least version 8.0 for optimal speed.



    To download Chrome click here To download Firefox click here



    To download Internet Explorer 8 click here To download Internet Explorer 9 click here

    To download Opera 11.6 click here To download Apple iOS 5 click here
