Browser Compatibility

The web has evolved in the last 10 years, from simple text pages to rich, interactive applications including video and voice. Unfortunately, very old browsers cannot run many of these new features effectively. So to help ensure you can view and use the National Water Safety Quiz site, you need to view it using the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0+
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0+
  • Google Chrome 4.0+
  • Safari 3.0+

Flash

Please note that your computer will need to be running Flash version 10 or later for the Quiz to load.

High traffic times

When administering the Quiz in a classroom, it is recommended that the teacher staggers the start times of the children to minimise the slow loading time that can be experienced when a lot of people access the Quiz at exactly the same time.

School Systems

For teachers running the Quiz on school computers for their students, please note that some school or Department of Education based internet filters may not allow the Quiz to be accessed. If you have trouble loading the Quiz, please contact your school's IT manager and then the Department of Education in your State or Territory for advice.
