Browser Upgrades

IDA is keen in maintaining a website that uses Web design standards. While the Web Standards practice is not a new call, the majority of Websites today do not conform to the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines and specifications. For you our user, Web standards coded websites will make pages more accessible and load faster.

The majority of our visitors use a standards-compliant web browser, and you appear not to be using one. IDA offers its assistance by helping you remedy the situation and improve your browsing experience on and the rest of the world wide web. Please read below for more information on why you were sent to this page.

Why You Were Sent to This Page.

The Web is a fast-paced medium. The coolest and most advanced sites of today may become tomorrow’s dead wood in the blink of an eye. Think back for a moment to websites you regularly visited five or ten years ago. Are they still as cool or advanced as they were back then? Or have they been overtaken by newer, better websites?

The same goes for Web software, most importantly browsers — the program you use to visit web sites, store your favorites, and interact with friends, co-workers, and companies all over the world.

A browser that was clearly the best at the time of its release may become stale over time. It will be overtaken by other browsers that are better at some tasks, and in the end users of older browsers will find themselves excluded from the Web’s most exciting and innovative content. That’s what’s happening to Internet Explorer 6 these days. That’s what might happen to you.

IE6 was released in 2000, and back then it was the most advanced browser in the world. Unfortunately it has not aged very well, and nowadays it has several serious problems. Its security model is flawed, and its support for CSS and JavaScript, the languages that make websites behave as you want them to behave, is distinctly outdated.

As a result, you’ll encounter more and more problems as time goes by; problems that are caused not by the websites you’re visiting, but by the browser you’re using: IE6 and Maybe IE7.
