Supported Browsers for CANVAS

Because it's built using web standards, Canvas runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser.

Below is general information from Canvas' website. For specific version numbers and more detailed information, please visit the Canvas Help Page on Browsers.

Supported Browsers

These are the web browsers that Cedar Crest recommends for use:

  • Chrome Available on all platforms
  • Edge (Chromium version) Available on all platforms

These additional browsers are supported by Canvas, but not recommended by Cedar Crest College unless they are necessary.

  • Firefox 
  • Flash(used for recording or viewing audio/video and uploading files)
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser (supporting the latest system requirements)
  • Safari (Macintosh only)

You should always use the most current version of your preferred browser. Your browser will notify you if there is a new version available.

Some supported browsers may still produce a banner stating Your browser does not meet the minimum requirements for Canvas. If you have upgraded your browser but you are still seeing the warning banner, try logging out of Canvas and deleting your browser cookies.

Known Browser Behaviors

Like all Canvas features, contrary behaviors relating to browsers are prioritized by our product teams, and some behaviors in the previous version may not be resolved. If a behavior exists in the previous version of the browser that does not exist in the current version, the best solution is to update to the newest browser version.
