Web browsers are constantly improving; newer software versions make your online experience faster and smoother, increase compatibility with new technology, and give you more features and options.

We test new online services using the latest browser versions, and aim for our features and functionality to 'degrade gracefully' in older versions; we cannot use resources testing and fixing bugs which relate to 'non-supported' browsers.

Using older browsers and technologies
