A US company is offering a brand new computer to it’s customers still using Internet Explorer 7.

NursingJobs.us has worked out that it is cheaper to buy each customer using IE7 a new computer with an up to date and standards compliant web browser than it is to make their new website IE7 compatible.

On their blog, they say:

“We determined that it would cost us more to support a browser from 2006 in 2014 and beyond than it would to help our clients upgrade their legacy hardware”

See The Register for the original story.

This highlights an issue which appears to be as much a problem in the US as here – public organisation and businesses with outdated IT systems and software.

This is usually because of limited IT budgets or restrictive software – such as web-based applications which will only work in outdated browsers.

The looming end of life for Windows XP could be interesting for such organisations!
