Answer: It depends.
Since we live in a world with multiple operating systems (Windows, iOS, OS X, etc.), and with multiple browsers (Firefox and Chrome), it is wise to be open to using multiple browsers when the situation fits.
For years, Firefox has been the official browser for everyone to use. However beginning in the Summer of 2014 we made Chrome available to students on school Windows computers.
Below is a rundown of when you should consider using what browser:
- Accessing your Google Apps Account (including Drive & Mail): Chrome
- Accessing Canvas courses: Chrome
- Accessing Moodle courses: Firefox
- Taking a MAP Test: Chrome
Our advice for all students is to have both browsers ready to use at any time. Switching from browser to browser is not uncommon by our staff or by our successful students.
