How dare optus decide to just lock out people without the right level of browser.
What idiot company PR department would allow this.
In my particular case I cannot have to accidentally discover that i don't have the very latest firefox.
Most sites have minimum browser requirements both for security and additional features. Supporting legacy code and every past version can get pretty involved. Usually they don't require the latest version though. Are you referring to the Optus Sport site? This would definitely need to be kept up to date as this functionality is constantly evolving.
What version of Chrome are you using @markben
I'm using Version 78.0.3904.97 on my work and personal computer. The URL - https://www.optus.com.au/for-you/support is working fine on both.
We're not just upgrading the look and feel of the website. We're in the process integrating our sales & customer relationship management systems as well as moving across to a single content management system. There's a lot of work happening on our side.
Only a select amount of customers visiting the website are being prompted to visit the new Optus website. The purpose of which is to monitor and optimise its performance before it's made available to all visitors. So, In saying that - we'll gladly take any feedback and relay it back to the devs.
FWIW Less than 1 in 10 people use Firefox anymore (and that number is steadily declining). By contrast 7 out of 10 people use chrome. Firefox was my browser of choice too back in the day.
I'll download Firefox at home and check it out. I really can't imagine that we've deliberately dropped support for Firefox.
We may have optimised for Chrome in terms of page load times etc, but it shouldn't be completely inaccessible using another browser.
