ANU web style is tested for compatibility with a set of the most popular browsers. This set is updated roughly every two months based on analytics for the past month, and includes browsers used in at least five per cent of visits to ANU websites which we track. To fully test responsive layouts and functionality, the set also includes the most popular mobile browsers.
As of November 2016, the browsers tested against are:
- Internet Explorer 11 on Windows. 'Compatibility View' should be turned off.
- Chrome 54 on Windows and Mac
- Firefox 38 and 49 on Windows; Firefox 49 on Mac
- Safari 10 on Mac
- Safari 10 on iOS (iPhone and iPad)
- Chrome 54 on Android (smartphone)
Note: From 2016, we do not support Internet Explorer 7 and 8, or compatibility view in other versions of IE.
Visits to the ANU websites in November 2016 consisted of 83 per cent desktop browsers, 14 per cent mobile and 3 per cent tablets.
Governance & support
Have you checked in with your local web manager or web team? Every College and most Divisions have a manager or team who oversee the websites in their area. The level of support they offer ranges from offering high level advice to building websites. As a general rule, you should keep the local web manager informed of any web activity you are involved in so that they can ensure it fits within the larger structure.
While the Marketing Office web team aren't in a position to build sites for you, we are certainly here to offer help and suggestions and we encourage you to check in with us in the early stages of your web project so that we can provide you with the best support.
