Today I’m going to talk about a compatibility problem.
In many company, the versions of OS and web browsers are set at group level. So, the update of these browsers and OS is not always possible.
After doing some research, I came across this article describing compatibility for SharePoint 2013: http://technet.microsoft.com/fr-be/library/cc263526.aspx
Having a customer using Internet Explorer 8 and following this table, it seems that it is supported …
« Seems » is the good word.
In fact doing some testing, we came across some strange behavior
– systematic Freezes
– ribbon’s button disappearing
-Drag & drop unavailable
We are still compiling the information to really know it is supported but no real answers so far. I opened a topic on msdn forums but I do not really have specific answers: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointgeneral/thread/35741e61-b003-4167-a55f-16a147e54ff7/
For drag & drop, it seems that with Office 2013 installed, it would work: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2796734?wa=wsignin1.0
For the rest, we are still investigating.
If you have answers, feel free to reply to this post !
