SunRays, Browsers, and Registration

In early March we heard scattered reports of students having difficulty completing the web-based course registration process using a SunRay device. After extensive testing, we determined that the registration process works fine on a SunRay provided you use Netscape version 7.0 or Mozilla as the browser. There were occasional problems with Netscape 4.76 and significant problems with Internet Explorer 5.

We have had other significant problems running Internet Explorer on SunRays, and the vendors involved are not very interested in addressing these problems. As a result, we have decided to drop Internet Explorer from all SunRay machines, effective April 2, 2003.

Netscape 4.76 will remain on the SunRays for the time being, because there are certain browser plug-ins installed in this browser that cannot be pre-installed for later browsers. We encourage students to use Netscape 7.0 for web registration.
