SWC will be upgraded soon.  As part of that Upgrade support for Internet Explorer will be removed.  Many of the advanced features the site uses will no longer be supported by outdated browsers.

Please complete the poll.

Internet Exploder shouldn't be used by anybody.

Still supported by MS, we just finished our Win 10 upgrade earlier this year.  Hospitals don't have a lot of money right now.  We got lucky with our upgrades.  We still have homegrown applications that are using IE.

Please don't tell me you're using DOS too.

A couple of our customers' on-line orientations are Explorer only. It's a frigging PITA.

I don't know much about web design, but is this a normal thing?  We have a web based program we use at school that was giving me fits. It turned out that the teachers were using internet explorer and that was causing the problem.

Yes.  Must things are designed to run on Chrome and whatever Mac uses.

IE is running on old architecture.  Most websites use new tools that didn't exist when IE11 was created.  IE11 is till supported, but not being worked on any longer, Microsoft have given it an end of life date of Aug 2021.

Edge and Chrome are both built off of Chromium.  If you use one of those, or Safari, you will not have any issues.  Some browsers are locked out by organizations like a school.  Can you install one?

For my sites, I am going to hunt down a redirect script that does not allow people to visit the site as it will be nearly impossible to use.  It will bring them to a page letting them know they need a modern browser.

They were told to use Chrome, but did not listen.  I have no idea where they even found internet explorer because they have some very up to date devices.  On my list of things to do tomorrow is to find out how IE was installed on their devices.

...and a modern, carbon fiber reinforced, plastic bicycle. That's what I can see coming down the road. :(

Isn't it called "Edge" now?

I use Firefox and sometimes Chrome when the combination gets me twice as many visits to a free site.

Kinda.  Edge replaced IE, but is not an advancement or improvement of it.  It's a whole new browser, and I really like it.  I switched from Chrome, although they are very similar as they are built on the same architecture.
