I'm here to tell you that is not necessary. If you are not already using Google Chrome as your browser, you should be. It does all the work for you allowing you to do your surfing without any hassle. Not to mention all the wonderful extensions and apps you can add to it. If you are using Chrome, but not using the extensions, it's time to fix that.
Extensions like... Pinzy - Enlarge Pinterest Pins simply by hovering over them. Pure genius.
So, what are you waiting for? Search for and load up Google Chrome (easy to do), put the icon where you can get to it and open it up.
Now.. up on the top right, click on Chrome for the drop down menu.
Go to preferences
Click on extensions
.. you won't have any but it will ask if you want some or something like that.
Now, off to the Chrome Web Store with you.
When you get there.. search (top left) for Pinzy and when it comes up - click on add to Chrome.
That's it! Easy. Every time you go to Pinterest now you will only have to hover to get a better view.
Now look around and see what else you want, so many choices.
I also have the FB Photo Zoom for viewing photos on Facebook the same way.
Need more reasons to switch? - 2 of my favorites: When you open up Chrome, you will see 8 of your most visited pages displayed, saving you time. Did you close a window accidently? Whenever you open up Chrome you will see "recently closed" on the bottom right... click on it. Voila!
I could go on, but then I'd be off topic completely. Check Chrome out, explore and I think you'll love it.
