Telford & Wrekin website fixed for Chrome and Safari

I have just received confirmation from Telford & Wrekin Council that they have fixed the "Report it" functionality on their website for users of Google Chrome and Safari after I reported a bug to them a couple of weeks ago.

Chrome and Safari are the third and fourth most popular browsers in the world after Internet Explorer and Firefox.  Safari is the default browser for Apples, including iPods, iPads and iPhones.  Google Chrome is Google's own browser which runs on the new Chrome Book laptops and Windows, Linux and Apple computers.

The bug I identified was with the address finder which appears on a lot of the "Report it" forms.  When entering address details, the search brings back the full address but doesn't populate the form with the details which means that you are unable to continue with the report.
