Web Browser and Desktop Operating System Support

This page provides information about the supported Windows and Macintosh operating systems and browsers for the Web-based administrative applications that ITS manages.

ITS works directly with the software vendors to influence them to support the latest version of both Apple and Window operating systems and to expand its browser combinations.
