Home > Browser upgrade

How did I get here?

Your browser does not support accepted web standards and you can learn more about upgrading your browser.

What "web standards?"

The ones created by the World Wide Web Consortium - the people who invented the Web itself. The W3C created these standards so the Web would work better for everyone. New browsers, mainly, support these standards; old browsers, mainly, don't.

This page was created in order to educate individual web users as to the existence of web standards and as to the availability of browsers that do a competent job at supporting common web standards and encourage them to upgrade to browsers that support standards such as HTML, CSS and a standard DOM.

What can I do?

Your choice of software may be out of your hands. However, if you do have control over what software you are using you should consider upgrading your browser. Doing so will improve your web experience, enabling you to use and view sites as their creators intended.

The following browsers support numerous web standards including CSS, XHTML, and the DOM (a universal means of controlling the behavior of web pages):

Please note that this page does not pretend to be an exhaustive list of browsers that support web standards, nor a test of browser compliance, nor a side-by-side comparison of various manufacturers' browsers. You can also find browsers on my download links page.

This page is mainly adopted from http://www.webstandards.org/upgrade/. The page was started for web builders who wanted to start using existing web standards, but who also feared the impact that it might have on the significant portion of their audience due to poor standards support in the popular browsers.
