What browsers, and what versions of browsers are certified for Leganto?

As a true cloud solution, Leganto requires only a browser for the end user. Leganto is certified for all the leading browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. There is an ongoing process of monitoring new browser versions and checking their compatibility with Leganto.
Ex Libris’ browser certification policy is based on industry usage statistics (W3C) as published on the following site: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp. The following table describes the certified browsers:
Browser Version
Microsoft® Internet Explorer®
Certified versions: 11
Ex Libris will make every effort to test and support new browser versions for Microsoft® Internet Explorer® when its industry usage is over 20% of all versions of this browser
Mozilla® Firefox®
Ex Libris makes every effort to test and certify the most recent stable version of Firefox on an on-going basis.
In addition, Mozilla offers an Extended Support Release (ESR) based on the official release of Firefox for desktops for use by organizations, including schools, universities, businesses, and others who need extended support for mass deployments.
Ex Libris will make every effort to test and certify the latest ESR version, after the overlap period between the older and newer ESR version is over.
Google Chrome™
As with Firefox, Ex Libris makes every effort to test and certify the most recent stable version.
Google Chrome applies updates automatically.
Discontinued Browser Version support
Ex Libris may discontinue supporting a certain browser version based on its industry usage in general usage in Leganto. Issues reported that are specific to a browser that has been discontinued will not be actively investigated or corrected.
Ex Libris will give prior notice when support of a browser version is discontinued.

How do instructors and students interact with Leganto - are there any browser or device dependencies?

Because Leganto is fully web-based, staff interact with the system via a standard browser, unlike other web solutions that may require third party components (such as .NET framework). Leganto is a truly web-based (based on Java) SaaS solution that does not require local desktop installation or components. For secured SSL communication with Leganto, Ex Libris uses a certificate from ‘Go-Daddy’ which is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows-based clients.
Leganto supports all of the leading web browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. Current supported versions are Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 3+ and Chrome 6+. As we enhance the system, and as browsers are updated, we release recommendations for new versions of each supported browser. Ex Libris provides advance notice of any change in the minimum browser requirements.
We maintain an ongoing process of monitoring new browser versions and checking their compatibility with Leganto. Leganto’s browser support policy is based on industry usage statistics from W3C.
