Exact sees an increase in the usage of internet browsers other than Microsoft IE in its customer-base. This may increase further after Microsoft press release last week that they’ll be shipping Windows 7 with a ballot screen, allowing Windows 7 users to select their preferred internet browser.
As a result of this trend in adoption of other browsers, Exact has started developing multi-browser support for Exact Synergy Enterprise. This will be delivered in pieces to the market during the quarterly product updates where each product update will see an improved level of support for browsers other than IE.
We’ve started in 242 by removing a check that Exact Synergy Enterprise can only be started by users with an IE browser. In 243, scheduled for general availabiltiy in April 2010, we’ve made several adjustments ‘under the hood’ that give us a good starting point for further enhancing Synergy Enterprise with multi-browser support. You may already notice these improvements in i.e. the request area.
Via this blog we’ll keep you updated of what the next areas will be that have multi-browser support in upcoming product updates of Exact Synergy Enterprise.
