While I usually see some IE-only sites unwilling to change their code to W3C standards, this is the first time for me too see some site (and such a big site) quite willing to change an originally browser-independant site to IE-only (and their reason to do this in their announcement is "for security reasons", which is ridiculous).

Note that their action actually lead to many users' objections, but they even threaten users who are against their decision by saying something like "we'll reserve the right to take legal action on those who slander us" in their support forum...

well they actually use an ActiveX plugin in the login form instead of a standard HTML input box. Originally this ActiveX plugin is optional, and now they are forcing users to use it. For me using such an ActiveX plugin to ensure "security" is nonsense, but they just decided to do this. And most of (luckily, not all) Chinese banks requires this for online banking as well (I think there's a news about it at fsf.org).

What can we do to it

I am running my eShop with the acceptance of Alipay accepting payments from China. How am I suppose to solve this as it will cost potential lost if my buyers are using Firefox to surf on the net. I also joint another payment gateway company from Hong Kong called PaymentAsia taking international credit card, how do I find out what browsers do they support or not? Are there any program I can use to find it out? Please advice.

They seem to be having some problem with their site right now. I only get access denied.

I guess if they don't mention any browser-requirements any browser should be fine.

Okay, that error is gone, but I still get SQL-errors...

How to find out the truth?

Thanks for the reply but this worries me because I will never be able to find out whether both my providers (Alipay and PaymentAsia)are fully support with all the browsers out there.

If my clients are failed to make it they will never come back to shop again and I will never know...

Any good suggestion to test it out?

Thanks.

This might be a bit too

This might be a bit too obvious, but you could test it out by using a browser which you want to test it with to try to buy something through the site, maybe even your own product, and see whether this is possible without trouble.

I think PayPal can support

I think PayPal can support non-IE browsers.
