MacOS follows a sliding window of support, the latest version has full support and the previous two versions receive security update. When a new version is released, security support is dropped for the version which is now 3 years old.

With the introduction of Windows 11, Microsoft revised their product lifecycle. There will be a single yearly release for both windows 10 and 11 going forward. Each Windows 10 release will be good for 30 months, and each Windows 11 Release will be good for 36 months. Windows 10 will go final end of life on October 14, 2025.

Supported Web Browsers

To support the security measures to keep your data safe, we require the use of a modern browser. As new versions of browsers are released, we will deprecate support for older versions.

 

Even if you are using a supported browser, you might not be able to use some web applications if your web browser is not supported by the developer of that web application. Please refer to the developers of the websites and web applications to determine their browser requirements.

We recommend having more than one web browser available on your computer.

Microsoft Edge

 

Google Chrome

 

Firefox

 

Apple Safari

 

Microsoft Internet

of January 1, 2021, Internet Explorer is no longer a supported browser. All Internet Explorer users are required to switch to Microsoft Edge or another supported modern browser.
