Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) for Windows was recently released by Microsoft. As with all new product releases, thorough testing and evaluation must be done to ensure that the software functions properly in our environment. Particularly with Web browsers, it's important that our major systems such Homer, Parnassus and Blackboard, to name a few, are certified to work with new browsers.

IE8 is still under early evaluation by ITS and at this time it is recommended that users NOT install IE8 on college-owned computers in order to avoid compatibility issues with campus applications.
