Considering buying a Mac computer? Some websites are not accessible on Macs.

The sad part is Safari is far superior to IE just based on security alone. Alas, even some banking sites are still IE only.




I'm job hunting. I'm on a Mac. My browser options are Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari.


The above webpage is at the tail end of a 10-page résumé-building process for civilian jobs with the US Navy. It loads only in Internet Explorer according to multiple people that work with their websupport/vet help.



Below for your amusement is the email chain that resulted. Start at the bottom, unfortunately.

Not your fault, Tina. The USAjobs listing leads to the page
Libraries give you 1hr.

Par,


You don't have any libraries in your area?  You can also go to the USAjobs website and apply for jobs.  Sorry about that.


Sincerely,


Tina

Tina,


Thanks for the quick reply. I guess I'll have to wait a few months to apply, then.

       Good Morning Par;






       Unfortunately the application only works with Internet Explorer.  The application will be going away in a few months so there won’t be any modifications made to it at this time.  Sorry for the inconvenience.






       Sincerely,






       Tina

       Dear Sir or Ma'am,






       The following webpage of your employment website is not accessible:






       https://chart.donhr.navy.mil/myresume/resumeS7E.asp








       I have tried Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari web browsers. As I am on an Apple Macintosh computer Internet Explorer is not an option.



My other options:

  1. Emulating a Windows environment and running IE via that. 
  2. Linux something or other. 
  3. Library.
  4. Buy a new Windows computer.
  5. Friend's computer.


Brb, library.
