Browser Recommendations

Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) 5.5x & 6.0/6.0 SP1 are the preferred browsers for E-Business Suite 11i.

Although 11i is also certified with MSIE 5.0x & Netscape Navigator 4.7x (where x = 3 or higher), performance of the HTML self service interface is substantially better with MSIE 5.5x & 6.0/6.0 SP1.

NOTE: MSIE 5.0 was de-supported. Oracle is continuing to test and certify ongoing releases of the browsers and may adjust this recommendation in the future.
