Idk if this goes here, so, Staff and Admins please move this to the appropriate section if this isn't the right subforum for this.

How does the site look in 2019 on Windows XP? I am using Firefox 43 for this with 1024x768 resolution on an IBM ThonkPad T23.

I think it still looks good today. BTW I'm posting this on my thonkpad.

Not very surprising at all. This site isn't particularly complicated for browsers to render; hell, my 3DS browser renders it nearly flawlessly.

In fact, before BA switched to forced HTTPS, it even rendered perfectly fine in Internet Explorer 6. If someone was able to patch in support for more modern security into IE 6, I'll almost guarantee that it'll still render fine.

windows 2000/windows xp and xp x64 can get secure connections on ie6 by installing specific updates.

I think for IE6 in Windows XP, you would need the April 2008 update for IE6 SP3, as that has the latest updates included with XP SP3. I think it might work in the x64 edition of XP as well.

Ow, you are talking about IE v6.0. But what about v8.0 - is there the same problem with it?

When it comes to different versions of a program for a certain operating system, then I don't think it would have the same problem as another version. I guess I just thought you were asking about IE6 updates, since you were asking that question to the person who mentioned updates for IE6...

I remember the site worked with a 2k system on ie5 without the high encryption hotfix.

To be expected from a site that uses basic php and html without heavy scripting.
