What do we mean by supported browsers?

When new features are rolled out to our website, supported browsers will be tested to make sure that the new features look and work as they should. Functionality and layout bugs for existing features that are found will also be fixed for supported browsers.

Although we will not spend any staff time or resources fixing bugs and testing new features for non-supported legacy browsers, most of the site's main functionality should continue to work although some layout issues such as overlapping images and strangely formatted bullet points may occur. This can be fixed by upgrading to a newer version of your browser.
