Tar Heel Shared Reader

Classic Mode for Old Computers

I’ve had several bug reports about the new Tar Heel Reader not working on really old web browsers and computers. We worked hard to make the site functional for everyone but we can’t test on every old system. In fact, we have nothing but the newest computers so we had to use deep magic to test on the still heavily used old browsers like Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8. Unfortunately that magic won’t work for old Macintosh computers.

I hate the idea that kids are unable to read books on the terrible computers their schools provide so I whipped up “Classic Mode”. Check it out here and see if it helps those old computers work with the new design.
