This website is tested using the current editions of the 4 most common web browsers
(e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera).
In general, this website will function properly in one or more of the prior versions
of each of these browsers; however, we do not maintain old versions of these browsers
for testing. We highly recommend that you keep your browsers up to date. Each browser
is easily updated, most via auto-update, please use it.
The following links can be used to update your browser... (alpha-ordered):
- Internet Explorer
- Internet Explorer 6 is a highly publicized security risk. Microsoft recommends upgrading
immediately. MiCase does not support this browser.
- Compatibility mode is not needed. This was used in versions prior to IE9.
- Safari - Apple discontinued
the Windows version of this browser. Therefore it is no longer tested.
MiCase does not test mobile browsers, due to their wide-variability and the cost
to have test devices; however, some consortium members have informed us that they
can access much of the site using their Smartphones.
MiCase develops our web-applications, using Firefox as our primary browser and then
verifies design/function in the other browsers. We do not seek to make the website
identical in the other browsers, but only to make sure they function properly. Each
browser handles certain functionality differently and in some cases the browser
will not view "exactly" the same, yet it will still be functional.
