Recently, Microsoft gave us at MaxPreps a good laugh when they humorously announced the funeral for their internet browser, Internet Explorer 6.0. While IE6 is used by less than 1% of the country, we still get our fair share of calls and emails from users who struggle with our site because of an old browser and we want to help out anyone running into trouble.
Just as an example, here are photos comparing Chrome to IE6 on the MaxPreps home page:
It’s not pretty.
If you’ve ever had issues loading a MaxPreps page, or things just looked funky or didn’t work properly, there’s a very good chance it’s because of your browser or browser settings.
Trust us, our site looks and works much, much better on the following browsers and up:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0+
Mozilla Firefox 3.0+
Google Chrome 4.0+
Unfortunately, no version of AOL is currently compatible with MaxPreps.
Our personal favorite at the office is Google Chrome, but the rest should work just fine. Still having trouble viewing the site? It might be your browser settings. Click here to get some tips on how to fix that.
