    Browser Notes

    *Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Safari follow a continuous release policy that makes difficult to fix a minimum version. For this reason, following the market recommendation we will support the last 2 major version of each of these browsers.

    **Note for Windows XP Users

    Windows XP is no longer supported by its original vendor, Microsoft, but if your organisation has internal policies that have extended the use of Windows XP, IMPROVE recommends that your PCs be migrated to MS Windows 8 or above at your earliest convenience. If you are unable to upgrade your PCs at this time, we recommend installing the latest version of Google Chrome, as a temporary solution.

    ^Note for Internet Explorer 11

    We will no longer support Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 in January 2020. As part of this process, IMPROVE will no longer offer maintenance and support related to issues with your platform that occur only on Internet Explorer 11 starting on July 31, 2019. Only critical issues related to your platform will be supported fixed by IMPROVE’s development teams, if necessary. In the meantime, we strongly encourage you to start moving you and your learners to one of our other supported browsers.

    IMPROVE strongly recommends that clients maintain updated operating systems (both desktop and mobile) aligned to the latest release made available by the respective vendor.

    Note about Flash Content

    Please keep in mind that Flash content is not playable on iOS devices. Flash was deprecated on Android devices in 2012, and desktop browsers are going to deprecate it by 2020. When adding learning content to your courses, be sure to avoid adding Flash-based content (in SCORM or HTML training materials) because, most likely, the learning content will not be playable by learners using mobile devices and modern desktop browsers.
