If you have been redirected from WebCSD v1 to the newer JavaScript-based CSD web interface ( it is likely to be because your current internet browser was found not to support the use of Java applets.

Version 1 of WebCSD heavily relies on the use of Java for visualising structures, sketching and for browsing search results. We are in the process of transitioning the functionality to the new JavaScript-based system WebCSD v2.

If you would like to continue using WebCSD v1 for now, we would recommend switching to one of the following browsers, though please be aware that these browsers are also starting to remove support for Java in their more recent releases:

  • Mozilla Firefox v15.0 or later
  • Internet Explorer v6.0 or later
  • Safari v4.0 or later
