How do I update the browser on my 2016 LG Smart TV?

Question

My Chrome browser version is so old  by now that it doesn't work well with many sites.. I don't see how I can update it, but I'm positive there must be a way. 

Any tips? 

How do I update my firmware as well?

Unfortunately webOS does not run the Chrome browser, websites may misinform you that it is but what they are actually detecting is that the browser is built on WebKit.  WebKit is underlining architecture of many browsers, it is being misdirected as many websites do not yet support Smart TV browsers.  If your TV is running the latest firmware there is no way to update just the browser, the only thing I am afraid you can do is contact any website that does not work and make a constructive complaint about supporting Smart TVs.

    • Question: Unable to open web browser

      I'm trying to open up a web browser on our new 43UM750 OPLA set. On this webos site the instructions are clear "To open the web browser click on the home button on the remote, and select the button on the screen that appears as 3 diagonal dashes" they start. But when I push my home button, there is no sign of those three dashes. What am I doing wrong? Or are those instructions  out of date? Or is there something not mentioned there that I need to do to make those three dashes appear?

    • Question: Showtime Anytime doesn't work

      We have a relatively new LG smart tv.  Initially when we started up the Showtime Anytime app everything worked fine, but now when we try to watch a show after about 1-2 minutes it either stops and we have a black screen, or it bounces us back to the series menu.  Sometimes we have the twirling gray circle that looks like it's trying to load something and sometimes we don't.  Initially I thought it was my internet provider, but I just tried Showtime Anytime on my Sony TV through an Apple TV and i

      Bought a 65SM8200PLA only a  month ago!  Last Friday, the TV asked if I would like to update and I said Yes. So far so good but after the update the TV started showing several problems. Turning ON the TV takes forever! The LG logo appears briefly and the screen turns black. After 90 seconds the magic remote can be operated. Two minutes after its possible to access the HOME page. Several seconds later we can select HDMI and finally watch TV. The whole process takes about 5 minutes. The
