Compatibility Testing

Major redesigns are tested for compatibility with a wide range of browsers. Our current test suite is:

Windows 7 - SP2

  • Internet Explorer 9
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Safari
  • Google Chrome

Apple OS X and Linux

Although we no longer routinely test in OS X or Linux, versions of browsers tested under Windows (e.g. Firefox and Safari) should give similar results on OS X and Linux systems and we will attempt to resolve any platform specific problems that are reported to us.
