Browser Support

D2L/Brightspace is committed to performing key application testing when new browser versions are released. However, due to the frequency of some browser releases, D2L cannot guarantee that each browser version will perform as expected. If you encounter any issues with any of the browser versions listed in the tables below, contact Chattanooga State’s Academic Resources Center at the phone numbers or email listed above.
