    IE 9 is too old!

    One of our on-line document management sites has sent us a mail like this:
    It has come to our attention that certain users are still using older browsers while trying to use ******, and are therefore experiencing problems out of our control. ****** has been programmed to only work on the latest browsers, and therefore Internet Explorer 7, 8 and 9 are included in the list of out-dated browsers.
    So no XP, and only IE10 (or later). Though fortunately they do state this later in that same email:
    We recommend downloading Google Chrome as many of the features that make your ******* experience easier, are already built into Google Chrome.
    No mention of FF or Opera though, never mind Safari.

    Sorry to ask, but my web programming is a bit dusty. Is IE still in the same old boat - severe incompatibilities between versions?

    I have been using FF portable and almost never had any problems... I use it on both XP and win7 win8 so it works for me. That said I would send them a mail asking how much they get for promoting GChrome

    Yep, I use FF extensively, especially since I work on Win and Linux - which means all my settings can easily be synced between the 2, thus making it work and look the same on both systems. I think GC has something similar, but good luck trying something like that with IE!

    Yep, especially since this company charges a huge fee per project ... I'd like to ask them: "Now if I use GChrome ... do I get a discount? Or even a cut from your backhander?"
