Browser and OS support

Our pattern library is built to work best in the latest desktop and mobile browsers.

Core content will be accessible to a wide range of modern browsers and devices, including those that don’t support JavaScript, or have it disabled, meaning older browsers might display differently styled, though fully functional, renderings of certain components.

We apply future friendly techniques – using web standards appropriately – to ensure against our content breaking in new browsers and devices.
