Compatibility with Internet Explorer

To allow us to continue to take advantage of modern web standards to deliver improved functionality and the best possible user experience across our websites, we have decided to end support for IE11.

What does end of support for IE11 mean?

Microsoft Internet Explorer is now end-of-life in the Microsoft Lifecycle Policy, which means that support is gradually being withdrawn. Microsoft Internet Explorer is now end-of-life, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it. As a result, Seasalt Cornwal is no longer offering support for Internet Explorer and if you use it, you may find that features may not work correctly.

End of support means we will not fix bugs that are specific to IE11, and will begin to introduce features that aren't compatible with this browser.

Internet Explorer is based on old technology, and doesn't work in the same way as modern web browsers. Because of this, developing any web-based application normally requires work on the 'front-end' or user interface to be done twice - once for modern browsers, and again just for IE11.

What this means for you

If you're using Internet Explorer, we recommend that you instead update to another supported browser. Seasalt Cornwall supports the following desktop browsers:

If you're using an old version of any of the browsers listed above, you should update to the latest version or try a different browser.

Reasons for Switching to an Updated Browser

We strongly recommend that you switch to an updated browser version for the following reasons:

  • Security: Microsoft no longer provides security updates for older versions of Internet Explorer, and soon may cease providing security updates for the browser altogether for newer operating systems. **Without critical browser security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information.
  • Tech Support: Microsoft no longer provides tech support or fixes for older versions of Internet Explorer and may soon cease to provide support for the browser on newer operating systems.
  • Compliance: Businesses that are governed by regulatory obligations such as HIPAA must ensure that the software they are using is up to date and compliant with these regulations.
  • Lack of ISV Support: Many Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) no longer support Internet Explorer. For example, Office 365 takes advantage of modern web standards and runs best with the latest browser.
