  1. Hi, am I the only one who wonders why the Android Smart phone *is* supported, but the Android Tablet is *not* supported?

    From my point of view there is little to no difference between the Android O/s on, let’s say the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Tab 10.1.

    Or am I missing something here?

    1. Hi.
      I saw that, good question is all I can say. I don’t have an answer for you, it would have to be someone more ‘Android’ than me to answer that one.
      But if it truly is the same exact browser on the same OS…then I can’t see what difference it makes. But one way to look at it is, if it works, it works…
      If you need support from Microsoft, use a Android phone to replicate the problem.

    1. Hi.
      Not that I know of…there are a lot of standards used in 2013 that are not supported by IE6, like HTML and CSS standards.
      (I assume there are some special reasons why IE6 is still in use…)

      Good luck

      1. I agree with you about the reason to use other web browser. Unfortunately my customer has many desk with IE6. Probably they can’t upgrade the version because they have old software that can have problems with recent browsers versions.
        I think that there is not a workaround to make sharepoint run correctly with internet explorer 6.
        Thanks for the support

    1. Hi Jennifer.

      If you mean Acrobat Reader, then SharePoint as such does not care…:-)
      You can get better ‘integration’ with a web application setting, browser file handling something…
