Older Microsoft Internet Explorer does not allow download of Brave browser


I was helping a family member migrate some old data from a Vista laptop. MSIE was not loading a page needed to do some password recovery I needed to do. I went to http://brave.com/ and loaded the page - it was mostly blank, and clicking “Get Brave” failed to allow download of the installer. I ended up using Firefox, whose page loaded fine.

Loading MSIE Edge emulating MSIE8 I can replicate the issue. Page looks like:

MSIE9 works fine.

I realize it’s an older browser, but would be nice if brave.com accommodated users trying to install a better browser.

I reported this via twitter and it was suggested I report here.


Vista is no longer supported by Microsoft : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet

It is beyond end-of-life. It would be wise to migrate data and upgrade that particular system to a newer OS as Vista will only become more vulnerable to attack over time.

If you are looking for some free options, I have personal experience with https://linuxmint.com/ and https://www.ubuntu.com/

Other Brave users have installed on https://www.opensuse.org/ and https://getfedora.org/
