Browser support with SharePoint Foundation 2010

SharePoint Needs optimal browser for best performance and you would need to know the supported browsers before you plan to use it for your company, no points for guessing that Microsoft would support their own Browser much more than the other popular ones available in the market.

  • IE6 is not supported by Microsoft as it’s an outdated version
  • IE 7 to 11 are supported in both 32 and 64 bit flavors.

ActiveX controls

Some functionality in SharePoint Foundation 2010 requires the use of ActiveX controls. This produces limitations on browsers which do not support ActiveX. Currently only 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer support this functionality. All other browsers have the limitations.

Mobile browser support

  • Windows Phone 7.0 Internet Explorer
  • Apple iOS 4.0 Safari
  • Google Android 2.1 Android Browser
  • Research in Motion (RIM) Blackberry 4.0 Blackberry Browser
  • Nokia Symbian 3 Nokia Browser

About Pratik Vyas

Hi Readers, Welcome to Pratik’s SharePoint Blog. First of all Thank you very much for taking interest and spending time to tour my Blog I am in the ocean of SharePoint since January 2008 (almost 4 years), and still I feel I have to go more deep. I am working with a well known MNC as a SharePoint Consultant. Here I used consultant because I do a little development and customization with administration. I am very much interested in Microsoft products. I have started blogging since 2008 but I can say in real manner I have started it in 2011 (as I have posted only 4-5 blogs from 2008 to 2011 J) I believe there isn’t anything impossible in SharePoint, the only thing is sometimes we have to think something off track. I have posted couple of blogs which was discovered by going some off track, we can simply say it TRICKS. Feel free to reach me in case of any issues or queries I will be more than happy to help you. Good bye and Happy Reading, Cheers !!
