Upgrading your browser

Your browser isn't just something you use to visit a website, it also has built-in security features to help protect you online. We are always improving our site and adding new features, so it's important to keep your browser up-to-date so that everything runs smoothly.


Why should I upgrade?

  • Up-to-date security features
    Stay safe online and have peace of mind that you are being protected by the latest security updates.
  • A better online experience
    Websites will look nicer and perform faster, and you will also be able to use the latest features and tools they have to offer.
  • Screen reader support
    The latest browsers make it easier for newer screen readers to handle web technologies, such as JavaScript. If you have JavaScript turned off because it interferes with your screen reader, make sure your browser is up-to-date and try updating your screen reader or using another, such as the free tool NVDA.

If you choose not to upgrade your browser, there will be parts of the site that you won't be able to use. For example, Internet Banking is not supported by Internet Explorer 6 and 7. You will also experience issues when using the tools and calculators on our site.
