The site is optimised for the latest major releases of the following browsers on a rolling basis:

*We only support the latest version of Internet Explorer (IE11). We do not support IE7 - IE10.

We don’t test other browsers, such as Opera, SeaMonkey, Konqueror, etc., and nor can we guarantee site performance or user experience with older versions of other browsers (e.g. older versions of Firefox, Safari, and Chrome).

Because of differences in behaviour and support offered by each browser, you may find page layouts or minor functional differences when using the site in different browsers.
