PLEASE NOTE: Due to the increased rate at which vendors are now releasing new versions of their browsers, support for Chrome browser updates will only be maintained for the most recent shipping release of iNotes.  iNotes product testing on new Chrome browser versions will continue at periodic intervals which may or may not align with the browser vendor's release schedule. Should a problem be found when using a browser update with the most recent release of iNotes, we will make every effort to resolve the issue.  To expedite this resolution it is our recommendation that you contact the browser vendor as well as IBM Support about the situation.

Only one browser is needed as a pre-req for iNotes from the list of supported browsers.

Attempting to access Lotus iNotes through unsupported browsers results in the display of an unsupported browser notice. Netscape 4.x users may see hangs and/or crashes when encountering the Lotus iNotes unsupported browser page. If you are a Netscape 4.x user and you encounter these problems, you should open your mail file using the WebMail UI directly through the &ui=webmail switch. This is documented in the topic "Switching to WebMail" in the Lotus iNotes help.

Lotus iNotes will not work if JavaScript is disabled or if session cookies are disabled.

Safari on the Mac is supported by Full and Lite modes on the desktop and ultra-light on the device.

Notes

  • Note #1:

    Only one browser is needed as a pre-req for iNotes from the list of supported browsers.

    Attempting to access Lotus iNotes through unsupported browsers results in the display of an unsupported browser notice. Netscape 4.x users may see hangs and/or crashes when encountering the Lotus iNotes unsupported browser page. If you are a Netscape 4.x user and you encounter these problems, you should open your mail file using the WebMail UI directly through the &ui=webmail switch. This is documented in the topic "Switching to WebMail" in the Lotus iNotes help.

    Lotus iNotes will not work if JavaScript is disabled or if session cookies are disabled.

  • Note #2:

    ultra-light support provided according to documented Firefox prerequisite requirements.
