Reasons for requiring Safari or Chrome to access new 105 reporting service

Stephen Judd made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Stephen Judd to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Stephen Judd

Dear New Zealand Police,

I am a New Zealand resident.

I would like to know why the new online 105 service (https://105.police.govt.nz/home) specifies using "Google Chrome or the latest version of Safari" (https://www.police.govt.nz/105info). This seems like an unusual restriction to place on a government service which is essentially a simple form.

If the reason is a technical limitation, I would like to know what browser-specific functionality is required to deliver the service, ie, what feature of Chrome or Safari the site depends on.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Judd

Hmm...

This will be interesting given Government guidelines on browser compatibility: https://www.digital.govt.nz/standards-an...

"Web development should support all browsers and devices. Availability and accessibility of core content and functionality are key priorities."

Dear New Zealand Police,
I am a New Zealand resident.
I would like to know why the new online 105 service (
[2]https://105.police.govt.nz/home) specifies using "Google Chrome or the
latest version of Safari" ( [3]https://www.police.govt.nz/105info). This
seems like an unusual restriction to place on a government service which
is essentially a simple form.
If the reason is a technical limitation, I would like to know what
browser-specific functionality is required to deliver the service, ie,
what feature of Chrome or Safari the site depends on.
Yours faithfully,
