Whaleoil and Internet Explorer


This will be a little bit like “if your phone doesn’t work, call our Faults Line”, but we’ve been getting reports from people saying that Internet Explorer is not loading this site.

It will help if you ARE HAVING PROBLEMS and you can report in the comments below the following:

  • when did it start?
  • is it intermittent?
  • what Operating System are you on?  (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 1o)
  • what version of IE are you using? (Help | About)

Although it seems lame to side-step the problem, can I please suggest to people who use IE to also load Google Chrome on their computer.  At least you can access this site while we try to collect enough information to figure out what’s going on.

Personally, using Win 7 and IE 11, it works fine for me, so I can’t make it break to diagnose it.



(Can we avoid the generally inevitable snide remarks about people using Windows and/or IE please?)
