Upgrading your browser

Your browser isn’t just something you use to visit a website. It’s also packed with security features to help protect you online.

We’re always improving our site and adding new features, so it’s important to keep your browser up-to-date so that everything runs smoothly.

Why should I upgrade?

  • Up-to-date security features – Stay safe online and have peace of mind that you’re being protected by the latest security features.
  • A better online experience – Websites will look nicer and perform faster. You’ll also be able to use the latest features and tools they have to offer.
  • Support for screen readers – The latest browsers make it easier for newer screen readers to handle web technologies, such as JavaScript. If you have JavaScript turned off because it interferes with your screen reader, make sure your browser is up-to-date and try updating your screen reader or using another, such as the free tool NVDA.

If you choose not to upgrade your browser, there will be parts of the site that you won’t be able to use. For example, Online Banking is no longer supported by Internet Explorer 6 and 7. You’ll also find it harder to use the handy calculators and tools on our site.
