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’re being protected by the latest security features.
  • A better online experience – Websites will look nicer and perform faster, and you’ll 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 isn’t supported in Internet Explorer 6 and 7. You will also find it harder to use the calculators and tools on our site.
