    • Google Chrome (recommended!)
    • Firefox
    • Safari
    • Internet Explorer

    While there may be multiple browsers available on Olentangy devices and your home computer, not all browsers work flawlessly with every application. Google Chrome is recommended for Olentangy applications.  If Google Chrome is not available, Firefox will work as well.

    Note: Be sure that the pop-up blocker is turned off in your browser settings.
