Help: World Wide Web Browser
On this page, you will find:
You can use this service with any WWW browser. However, to take full advantage of its advanced features, we strongly recommend using a graphics-based, forms-capable browser such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is for the following reasons:
- Graphics: One of the important features of the service is its high quality presentation of mathematics in the abstracts. This is achieved by providing each piece of mathematics as a small graphics file. You will not be able to read the mathematics of any article without a graphics-based browser.
- Forms: The service uses forms for E-mail Alerting and as the basis for the online search facility. You therefore need a forms-capable browser.
Which World Wide Web browser?
There are a wide variety of browsers available for navigating the World Wide
Web. The following list shows those browsers that are known to be compatible
with this and other JET WWW services. (This list is
not exhaustive and you may prefer to use a browser not listed here.)
- Netscape Navigator (all platforms)
- NCSA Mosaic 2.x (all platforms)
- Microsoft Internet Explorer (Macintosh, Windows 3.1, Windows 95)
We recommend using the Netscape browser for best compatibility with the JET Preprints and Reports WWW services. You can download a copy of the Netscape browser for your computer for trial or unlimited use in academic or not-for-profit organisations from the Netscape ftp server. This site is very busy!
How to configure your World Wide Web browser
In general terms we recommend accepting the default settings of your browser.
Due to the large variety of browsers in use, JET Preprints and Reports cannot offer detailed technical support on how to configure your browser. If you are having problems with your browser software, refer to its documentation or contact your system administrator.
