IE7 users, we need to talk…


Wayne Gretzky once said “skate where the puck is going, not where it’s been” and, in the fast-evolving world of technology, this is sound advice that we have taken to heart as we launched the new job board. The new site uses a more modern interface that supports the mobiles and tablets that our users increasingly prefer.

Unfortunately, this also means that we have had to make the decision to leave Internet Explorer 7 users behind, a decision we did not take lightly (after all, we have been supporting even IE6 till recently!) but that we are convinced is the right thing for us to do at this time.

IE7 users make up 1.22% of our traffic right now, and this will decline as more computers are upgraded and can use modern browsers. However, we know that some of our clients are still stuck with IE7 so we decided to make a bold offer, one that initially seemed crazy to us but now makes a lot of sense.

We are offering to buy a new computer with a modern browser for any of our customers who are stuck with IE7. We determined that it would cost us more to support a browser from 2006 in 2014 and beyond than it would to help our clients upgrade their legacy hardware.

To any of our clients still using IE7, we are sorry that the site doesn’t work as well as we would like it to in your browser. Contact us to redeem our offer to provide you with a new computer to upgrade your browser. We want to make sure all our customers are well served by our new product and we are serious about making this right if our ceasing to support IE7 becomes an inconvenience.

who is my pc why receive pc i use all time firefox and chrome

No support? I would like to see the website.

Maybe buy them a low cost tablet instead. That way you can stop all the stuff people are saying about them not being allowed to upgrade their hardware by the company etc.

A full windows computer or something more along the lines of chromeos or even a pre-configured raspberry pi?

a raspi configuration would be much cheaper and easier to support (by pre-configuring some support tools)


I’m not sure I totally understand.

This is just plain silly and a waste of money.
Why don’t just enforce browser upgrade? (it can be done via javascript blocking browsing with IE and a message soliciting a browser upgrade)

IE7 n’est plus supporté dans la pluspart des applications professionnel. Elles sont développées sous les nouvelles generation IE7 et Java…Flash….par conséquent il est obligatoire de modifier toute l architecture applicative.

IE7 is not supported by pluspart the applications of the professional. They are developed under rising generation IE7 Java and Flash……. therefore it is necessary to change all the structures application.

i use all time firefox and chrome

There are many healthcare professionals who are stuck with legacy browsers AND operating systems at work. I have seen people in the recent months (this is Jan. 2014) in healthcare, both admin offices and in clinical areas using Windows 98, NT and XP and even pre-IE7 versions of the browser! Why? Because healthcare IT pleads poverty in many quarters OR they are tied down to some application that is (a) discontinue, (b) too expensive to replace and (c) won’t run on newer browsers. And if you think you can get them to switch to Firefox or Chrome, go tell them yourself as they could use the laugh.

Je me suis toujours méfier des navigateurs Microsoft. Failles de sécurité, lenteur, opacité, etc.
IE7 ne me rassure pas plus que IE6…
Des alternatives plus sûres existent, autant en profité !

I am always to be wary of the Microsoft navigators. Security breaches, slowness, opacity, etc
IE7 does not reassure me more than IE6…
Surer alternatives exist, as much benefitted from it!

Dj Mercader

Hi, my name is Diva and I have 88 years and use the computer with ease. I’m from Brazil and my grandson helps me constantly, but with this IE 7 could not see more recipes and emails. I need a new computer. Thanks,

I need a new computer because I’m one of the IE6 users:(

I want u help so, whow i can get one?

i am kind of used to IE7 but this sounds like a kind of a great deal

your users are so stupid they can’t figure out how to use Google Chrome or Firefox? That is odd offering a computer when it would be much easier to run another browser. Don’t tell me your site was written by a dip sh!t that required a specific version of IE… LOL You get what you pay for when you outsource your development.

Eu necessito de um pc novo então :(

i need

As a retired Data Systems Administrator I have always preferred and reccomended the IE browser. However my home system keeps giving me ‘IE not responding’ and ‘script error’ messages.
