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

Canvas supports the current and first previous major releases of the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox 
  • Flash(used for recording or viewing audio/video and uploading files)
  • Internet Explorer (Windows only—functionally supported; may exhibit slight visual differences from other browsers, but these differences do not restrict product functionality or accessibility)
  • Edge Windows only)
  • 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.
