You can download current versions of the most popular browsers below:
Firefox (PC and Macs) - http://www.mozilla.com/firefox
Internet Explorer 6 (PC) - http://www.microsoft.com/ie
Internet Explorer 7 Beta (PC) - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie7/default.mspx
Safari (Macs) - http://www.apple.com/safari/download
Opera (Macs) - http://www.opera.com/download
Netscape - http://browser.netscape.com (Not recommended - you should use Firefox)
We have fought the switch from HTML 4.0 to XHTML for the past few years. The decision has been made to switch to the latest coding language interpreted by Internet Browsers due to all of the advantages. The major browsers have supported these changes for the past couple of years and it's time to change. Browsers are free to download so the time to upgrade is now.
AOL users should be fine. I believe AOL uses a version of IE. They're an extremely small percentage of the users on the Internet so it's time to move on regardless. AOL users can also use IE, Firefox or whatever other browser(s) they have on their computer once they're connected with AOL so these changes shouldn't prevent them from accessing this website even if there's a problem. They will just need to access it with another browser IF there's a problem.
If your University or company is still using older browsers, please ask the person in charge of the IT department to upgrade the network's browsers. This change is inevitable and this site is going to be part of the future and not the past. Again, the biggest reason I'm being so hardlined about this is because the browsers are FREE. There's no reason why all of your computers shouldn't use the most current browsers. If your computer is slow or if you're on dial-up, it's time to upgrade my friends.
On that note, I'm signing off and I'm going to continue working on the site redesign that I've been working on for the past month or so. Have a great Easter!!!
