Many 'cloud' business services support SAML, and SAML is widely used by education and research resources and organisations. You can see a list of some of the available websites on Indiid Explore.

Can I access all education and research websites?

No - you can only access eresources that have been configured to accept and either permit free access or have a licensing agreement with We hope to arrange paid access to many more research websites, but these will require an additional payment.

Why can't I use old Internet Explorer web browsers?

We won't stop you from trying to use old Internet Explorer web browsers but they may not work correctly; they have numerous bugs, incompatibilities and security weaknesses. IE10 and above should work fine, as Microsoft have made a lot of changes to bring their browsers back up to a decent level. If you are using Windows XP and can't upgrade to a more recent Windows or switch to using Linux then you should try Google's Chrome.
