Hi,

Does this link ...

<p><a href="https://www.wondrium.com/">Wondrium</a></p>

work for you in Chrome Browser?

I get an error.

That link is in the "Links" menu option on my website ...

https://www.dalekelly.org/links.html

Works fine in Edge Browser.

When I try Internet Explorer I get a page saying the website no longer
supports use in Internet Explorer.

That is a message coming from the website. Websites, mostly the "modern"
ones, tend to behave differently based on users' web browser. This also mean
that, websites can refuse to serve content for web browsers they don't
support.

if I put this link ...

https://www.wondrium.com/

... in the Chrome browser address bar it works.

If I press on the "Wondrium" link on this page ...

https://www.dalekelly.org/links.html

... I get an error.

Here is the code to the "Wondrium" link on that page ...

<p><a href="https://www.wondrium.com/">Wondrium</a></p>

Interestingly enough "Wondrium" used to be called "The Great Courses
Plus" and there is no issue with a similar link on the page to "The
Great Courses"

Works in Brave as well another Chrome based browser. I don't have and
answer for you but this is what I found. In Chrome if you use the
developer tools when you traverse from your site's link this GET error
occurs:

<log>
GET
https://www.wondrium.com/lp/t5/nonlog-home?adobe_mc_sdid=SDID%3D49B55DDA3B13E721-3AD7E53B88534B85%7CMCORGID%3D5C26123F5245AF160A490D45%40AdobeOrg%7CTS%3D1661440200&adobe_mc_ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dalekelly.org%2F
403 (Forbidden)
</log>

Which reverse to some JavaScript on the Wondrium home page:

<code>
var utag_data = {
page_name: "Stream Entertaining Nonfiction Learning",
page_type: "cms-nonlog-home",
product_id: "",
product_sku: "",
collection: "",
format: "",
blacklist: "",
restriction: "",
partner: "",
instructor_title: "",
wondrium_marketing_subject: "",
product_subject: [],
country_id: "US|ROW"
};

require(['jquery'], function ($) {
$.get('/tealium/ajax/utagdata', function(data){
$.extend(utag_data, data);
}).always(function(){
(function(a,b,c,d){

a='//tags.tiqcdn.com/utag/teachingcompany/tgc-plus/prod/utag.js';

b=document;c='script';d=b.createElement(c);d.src=a;d.type='text/java'+c;d.async=true;

a=b.getElementsByTagName(c)[0];a.parentNode.insertBefore(d,a);
})();
});
});
</code>

Which later is referenced in some code with GET request:

<code>
<script type="text/x-magento-init">
{
"body": {
"pageCache":
{"url":"https:\/\/www.wondrium.com\/page_cache\/block\/render\/","handles":["default","cms_index_index","cms_page_view","cms_index_index_id_nonlog-home"],"originalRequest":{"route":"cms","controller":"index","action":"index","uri":"\/"},"versionCookieName":"private_content_version"}
}
}
</script>
</code>

Which references "magento" which is some Adobe commerce whatever. Since
the GET error references both "adobe" and your site as a referring URL,
probably it has some special issue with Google and Adobe...

The same error does not occur with Chrome-based browsers like Edge and
Brave...

Take care,
