Internet Explorer 8 was released on March 19, 2009, by Microsoft and will be the default browser for the upcoming release of the new Windows 7 operating system.

Due to reported incompatibilities with University applications, OIT is recommending that users not upgrade to Internet Explorer version 8 at this time.

There are many options available to you on the market for e-mail, calendaring, and browser applications. For a comparison, please see this comparison chart of desktop applications organized by operating system. Those notatedin red are recommended by OIT in order to obtain full support.
