Browser Requirements

SharePoint 2010 supports several commonly used Web browsers. Different browsers

offer different levels of support and functionality. Browser support for SharePoint 2010

can be divided into three categories:

• Supported

A supported Web browser is a Web browser that is known to fullytested with all features

and functionality to work with SharePoint Server 2010. If you encounter any issues,

support can help you to resolve these issues.

• Supported with known limitations

A supported Web browser with known limitations works with most features and

functionality, howeverif there is a feature or functionality that does not work or is

disabled by design, documentation on how to resolve these issues is readily available.

• Not tested

A Web browser that is not tested means that its compatibility with SharePoint Server

2010 is untested, and there may be issues with using the particular Web browser.

SharePoint Server 2010 works best with up-to-date, standards-based Web browsers.The

following are supported browser running on the Windows® operating system:

· Internet Explorer 7 32-bit

· Internet Explorer 8 32-bit

The following are supported browser options with known limitations:

· Internet Explorer 7 64-bit

· Internet Explorer 8 64-bit

· Firefox 3.6 32-bit on Windows operating systems

· Firefox 3.6 on non-Windowsoperating systems

· Safari 4.04 on non-Windows operating systems


SharePoint 2010 does not support Internet Explorer 6for publishing site scenarios (such

as Internet facing ―.com sites). The Web Content Management features built into

SharePoint Server 2010 provide a deep level of control over the markup and styling of

the reader experience. Page designers can use these features to help ensure that the

pages they design are compatible with additional browsers, including Internet Explorer

6, for viewing content. However, it is the page designers’ responsibility to create pages

that are compatible with the browsers that they want to support.
