It appears you are using the outdated browser Internet Explorer 8 to view MyFM and will likely experience poor performance. Before proceeding please check to see if there is a modern browser installed on the computer you can use:
Examples of modern browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Internet Expplorer 9+
- Mobile Device Browser
What’s so great about modern browsers?
- Security – Internet security is a big deal. Modern web browsers have good security features such as anti-phishing protection, malware detection and privacy/parental controls.
- Web Standards – Modern browsers support the latest web standards and technologies. CSS3 properties such as rounded corners, drop shadows, text shadows, gradients, etc. are not support in IE8. IE9 has improved support for these properties but it still doesn’t support many standard properties. More CSS and less image files will significantly speed up the load time of a website because a few lines of code are significally smaller in file size compared to a .jpg or .png file.
- Free – All of the browsers mentioned above are free to download and free to install. It only takes a few moments to download and install any of these browsers, so why not? The Internet will thank you in the long run.
What if there isn’t a modern browser to use and I am unable to install one?
In the event of this, you may proceed to login and use MyFM but please acknowledge that although MyFM undergoes rigorous testing using a wide variety of browsers, it is difficult to completely test and ensure full functionality with older outdated web browsers. Furthermore, follow up with the system administrator to enquire about having a modern browser installed.
