My Uncle is running an Apple Laptop and Safari is not working for him anymore he can't watch Youtube Videos or go to other webpages, because it says Plugin Blocked and that the Browser Version is not supported anymore. Can he use Google Chrome instead of Safari. Thank you!

Depending on which OS he has, he might be able to.

He should check for Software Updates to update literally everything, from the OS itself to the browser and the Flash plugin. Just tell him to click the Apple logo in the top left and go to Software Updates.

I called my Uncle and helped him to install Google Chrome and it worked. As for the updates I will go to his home and help show him how to update his Apple Mac Computer. Thank you both for your help.

I use both Firefox and SeaMonkey on my MacBook Pro, Windows and Linux computers. My MacBook Pro of mid-2010 started with Snow Leopard and then was upgraded to Mountain Lion, next to Mavericks and now has Yosemite. The MacBooks, and probably Desktops, made more than 5 or 6 years ago may not be upgradeable to the latest, have two clients in that situation, one is stuck on Leopard and the other on Mountain Lion.
