For older browsers (only IE11 is supported about security updates so it's
recommanded to upgrade), one idea is to mimic the behavior of the SRI using
client JS hashing code but honnestly it's acceptable to request a "recent"
browser like IE>= 11 or recent version of FF,Chrome,Safari in order to
benefits from SRI, X-Frame-Optiosn or full CSP moreover in the context of
using feature like OAuth.
