Unlike 08 numbers, 03 numbers cost the same to call as geographic landline numbers (starting 01 and 02), even from a mobile phone. They are also normally included in your inclusive call minutes. Please note we may record some calls.
When visiting a website today and attempting to use it I was met with a message that said “if the page freezes please use Internet Explorer”.
Being a Firefox user, I hit the back button, went to a competitor, made my purchase and went about my business.
Any company serious about making it online needs to ensure that their website is accessible by the main browsers as, if not, you can potentially be losing a big percentage of your sales!
Don’t become another statistic and, at the very least, ensure that your site performs in both Internet Explorer and Firefox as, after all, they account for approximately 93% of browser usage. You also can’t discount up and coming browsers such as Google Chrome.
By having your site built solely for one browser you could be losing traffic, substantial traffic at that. People aren’t going to take the time to move over to IE or Firefox just because you haven’t developed for either. When you spend time and money optimising a site and creating a design that does you justice, a seemingly small issue like this can undo all that hard work.
