Congratulations to Muskegon Federal Credit Union on the launch of their brand new website!

When we sat down with Muskegon Federal Credit Union initially to talk about the design and build of their new site, they noted that they wanted something easy to navigate, mobile responsive, easy to edit and would allow for them to showcase their services and promotions.

The new site features a clean design that uses SVG images and font icons for clearer graphics on high-resolution displays. In addition,  the site includes a sticky navigation, which gives users full access to the menu even when scrolling on pages with heavy content,  as well as ease of finding their routing number, phone number and the ability to contact or apply for a loan, as these items display on every page. The front page features online banking login, a full-width banner to showcase their latest promotions as well as a News & Information section, which focuses on the credit union’s most popular services.

Head on over to their new site to check it out!

On April 22nd WordPress.org officially announced that they will be ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10, beginning with WP 4.8. This is due to Microsoft discontinuing support for these browsers back in January 2016. The lack of updates define these browsers as security risks, and are considered to be “holding back WordPress development” according to Matt Mullenweg, founder and CEO of WordPress’ parent company Automattic.

Global Internet Explorer usage has been declining for years, and now sits at just 4.18% of all internet users. Combined, only 0.91% of users are utilizing IE 8, 9, or 10.

Boosting Internet Speeds

If your internet speed seems to be dragging behind lately, try some of these correctional techniques to revitalize your connectivity.

Perform local updates

Slow speeds can be caused by a lack of updated tools.

  • Internet browsers can auto-update, but that doesn’t imply that you are using the most up to date version. Check your settings to verify that you are running the most recent version of your browser, or download it directly from their website.
  • The same goes for your operating system. Don’t be overly dependent on auto-updates for your software. There are various methods to go about this, depending on the OS you are using. Computers running Windows can be updated by searching “Update” in your task bar. Macs are updated through the top menu in the App Store. Linux users can update using terminal commands (varying depending on the OS).
  • Routers can also get occasional firmware updates. Implementing these varies significantly, so do some research on your router company’s website for instructions for updates (if there are any available)
  • Could it be your device causing the slowdown? Be sure to update your phones, tablets, and other devices you have connected to the web.
