Technology updates and recommendations


We want to make you aware of several important announcements and recommendations concerning Renaissance Place that will go into effect in July 2017:

The following browsers will be supported:

  • IE 10.x–11.x
  • The five most recent versions of Chrome and Firefox
  • Safari 7 and later for Apple computers and iPads

Operating systems:

  • We will no longer specify operating system versions in our requirements going forward because browser versions are consistent across the supported OS in the market today.

  • First-generation iPads will no longer be supported.
