Interlated is proud of its standards based approach to web publishing. This approach leads to the the site being generally available on a wide range of browsing platforms.
The use of proprietary, non W3C technologies is limited to those areas where its use is deemed to provide an experience or service that cannot be provided otherwise.
Supported Platforms and Browsers
The targeted browsers and platforms are:
Internet Explorer: Versions 8 and above on Windows.
Firefox: Versions 4 and above. Windows and Macintosh.
Safari: Version 5, Macintosh.
Chrome: Versions 7 and above. Windows and Macintosh.
Secondary Browsers. These are platforms that we will test on but may make a decision as to not to implement workarounds if the cost/functionality loss equation is not high.
Safari: Version 5, Windows.
Opera: Windows, Macintosh, android.
Interlated specifically does not support Internet Explorer 6 (or earlier). The industry standard is that this costs 20% more to develop for. There are additional costs both in terms of lost functionality and increased complexity of the software. This currently is used by less than 3% of browsers in Australia. Please refer to http://ie6countdown.com for more information.
As part of phase #2 we can develop skins that are suitable to smaller screens such as iphone/safari and android browsers.
Search engine accessibility and optimisation will be considered as part of the build of the site. Performance of the site in respect to search engines is a component of ongoing maintenance and optimisation of the site.
Optimisation review for search engines can be performed as additional requested work. This includes competitor review, keyword review, content review and creation of a guide for content targeting.
Accessibility analysis is to be performed to a level that is cost-effective and appropriate to the site. This will be generally WCAG-2 with exceptions for some dynamic components. Please note that Interlated are not substantially changing the presentation and layout of the site and as such existing limitations may be carried over.
