I cannot access the Main Gate Forms with Netscape version 4.x, why?

Netscape version 4.x will not be supported in Main Gate Access web application because it does not support newer web technologies. Since users want web forms to be user-friendly, we decided to use some of the newer web technologies that would provide the greatest value to all BNL web viewers interacting with this application.

This application also uses recommendations that are laid out by the W3C. The W3C created recommendations like XHTML and CSS so the web would not fragment into ever–more–incompatible browsers and devices, but would instead work for everyone. The only way designers and developers can help the web achieve this noble goal is by authoring to these recommendations, while taking care to ensure that the sites still work as best they can in non–compliant browsers.

  • Netscape users will have to upgrade to at least version 6.0 or use another type of browser. To upgrade your existing Netscape browser, go to Netscapes download web page by clicking here.
