Browser support

Our sites use modern web standards to give the best possible experience for their visitors, which means we support as standard all of the major browsers across all devices:

More specifically, we support the latest versions of these browsers.

Generally speaking, most devices 10 years old or newer which have been kept up to date with software & security updates will be capable of running a supported browser.

Microsoft will be retiring the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on June 15th 2022. We will continue to support it until then, though we strongly recommend switching to Microsoft Edge for improved compatibility and security.

As we develop sites to be universally accessible users will still be able to use our sites on older devices or browsers, though the presentation may change where newer features are not present.

For users on devices no longer supported by their manufacturer, or unable to run the latest versions of browsers, we recommend using the browser most recently supported from any of the major browser vendors.

As an extreme example, for anyone still using Windows XP we recommend the Firefox browser which Mozilla supported on Windows XP until June 2018 (version 52.9.0).

This is far longer than Microsoft, who ended support for Windows XP in April 2014, or Google, who stopped supporting Chrome for Windows XP in April 2016.
