Browser support list
We must ensure that Queensland Government websites and web applications are functional for all browsers on the supported browsers list below.
Reduced support browsers are also shown below. Where possible, you should supply static or alternate content (or derivatives) for these browsers.
If unsupported technologies prevent the delivery of static or alternate content, reduced support or unspecified browsers should at least display the generic browser support error page.
Supported browsers have high support for current web technologies and standards.
You should test websites and web applications in these browsers during development or when significant changes occur.
Note: We identified these supported browsers after reviewing the statistics for August 2016 to February 2017 across Queensland Government websites and integrated applications (49,143,688 sessions during sample).

Reduced support browsers
Reduced support is reserved for less-capable (usually older) browsers that may not support current layout and display methods, or current methods of delivering dynamic content.
Where possible, you should deliver equivalent content to these browsers via static alternate means (e.g. plain HTML).
You should test these browsers to ensure that delivered content is not ‘broken’ (i.e. unreadable or incomplete).
