Browser Support Changes
Salesforce no longer supports Internet Explorer version 6. Some existing features may continue to work with this browser but we recommend upgrading to a newer version or browser for the best web experience.
Salesforce has the following comments for the following web browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 7, 8, and 9:
If you use Internet Explorer, Salesforce recommends using the latest version. Apply all Microsoft hotfixes. The compatibility view feature in Internet Explorer 8 and 9 is not supported in Salesforce. For configuration recommendations, see “Configuring Internet Explorer” in the online help.
Mozilla Firefox, most recent stable version:
Salesforce.com makes every effort to test and support the most recent version of Firefox. For configuration recommendations, see “Configuring Firefox” in the online help.
Google Chrome, most recent stable version:
Google Chrome applies updates automatically; Salesforce.com makes every effort to test and support the most recent version. There are no configuration recommendations for Chrome. Chrome is not supported for the Console tab or the Add Google Doc to Salesforce browser button.
