Can these please use the default browser instead of Internet Explorer?

    If nothing else, this is a security risk to open pages on unsupported browsers, if there’s a third party ad on one of the pages, they’re creating a vector for malware to be introduced on your machine.
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    This change is needed.

    What are you talking about?  I use Chrome and have ZERO problems opening any legit link provided by UO.

    Yeah, that's pretty much why I think this change is needed. Whenever I see Internet Explorer open I cringe. I'd disable IE system-wide if I could.

    Really?
    • Patch links open in Internet Explorer.
    • Help links don't work at all, as below (probably better than opening Internet Explorer).

    • Store links seem to work as expected in the default browser, though.
    • Not sure what other links there are, but I'd be happy to add them to the list. :)

    Microsoft Edge has replaced IE.  The new version is actually as fast as Crome at loading pages.

    But, those links do take you to IE instead.
