EMSI would like to give advance notice that we will be dropping support for the Internet Explorer 6 browser (IE6) this autumn when we release the next version of Strategic Advantage. For the best experience with Strategic Advantage, EMSI recommends that all clients (but especially those currently running IE6) install and use the free Mozilla Firefox browser. However, EMSI also supports Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) and Apple’s Safari browser, which are also free for anyone to download.
If you are currently using Internet Explorer and are not sure which version it is, just open it and choose “About Internet Explorer” from the “Help” menu. You’ll need to install a new browser if the first number after “Version:” is a 6.
We are doing this because IE6 is seriously out of date and does not comply with international technology standards that make modern web sites accessible, powerful, and efficient. Continuing to support IE6 increases development costs and prevents us from making innovative and useful improvements to Strategic Advantage. In addition, replacing IE6 with Firefox, IE7, or Safari is free, so the vast majority of our customers should have no barriers to making the change.
If you have any questions about this notice, please contact EMSI’s Customer Solutions department at (866) 999-3674. For detailed help on installing a new browser, please contact your organization’s information technology (IT) department or the browser’s vendor.
