It may seem stupid to you, but I have a need to visit the site using these browsers. Do not ask why. Just answer, is it possible or not?

IE8 should work, properly updated IE6 might work too.

All available updates. If this is on XP, you can just use Windows Update to install them all. For earlier Windows versions, you'll need to find them manually.

I know maybe not watching the topic, but IE 6 and IE 8 not work. So, where is the problem? Is IE doesn't support some BA features or BA refusing connection while sees IE 6/7/8 user agent?

Probably due to the HTTPS encryption being too new for IE6/8 would be my guess anyway.

BA works perfectly fine on IE8. Heck, I'm posting this from IE8 right now.

If you want to see how BA looks on IE8, here it is:

In case if you didnt know, the OP is on Windows XP.
IE8 on Windows XP/Vista has only 128-bit encryption. By the version it seems you're posting this from Windows 7. IE8 on Windows 7 has 256-bit encryption.

I urge to drop those browsers as they do not support current cryptographic standards, that's why they pose a risk for your data confidentiality.

Apparently you can add 256-bit encryption support to XP, I found a community made script on skaip.org . I haven't tested or scanned it for viruses yet, I'll update when I do.

It's not about the variant of block cipher used to encrypt communication, but about the TLS protocols (especially versions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3). They are supported mainly by the "schannel" driver and CryptoAPI. So you can't expect that Windows built-in software (like Windows Update or Internet Explorer) will be able to use newer standards if those driver wasn't updated. The only thing you can do to browse websites protected by current protocols is to install external browser like Firefox.
