3.0 Browser Compatibility

Sakai is designed to work with modern browsers. Recommended browsers (those with the most QA testing effort against them) are Google Chrome, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox. Microsoft Edge should work fine. Sakai should work on most modern tablet and mobile devices. IE 11 is a poor browser choice as it is deprecated, slow, and has not implemented modern features. New functionality like Rubrics, may not work with IE 11.
