Which Browser is the Best?

Alternate Image software supports IE 8. Our newest content management version showcased in the admin area supports IE8 which will soon be a mandatory upgrade. If you log into your admin area and see the green bar at the top, that means you need to upgrade and are not using IE 8. If you have IE 8 but have the compatibility view turned on, then that will also cause the green bar to appear.Turn your compatibility view off (click the broken page next to your address bar, or click on Tools>Compatibility View to change this setting.

Firefox is a great browser and has proven to be the most effective when working with AI's Content Management system. We are looking forward to turning on our newest version of content management for the user side as early as first quarter. This will allow for cross browser usage to include Safari. We recommend remaining current on all browsers to fully utilize the software and its improvements.
