Browsing the Web at Griffith

You can use any web browser on your staff computer at Griffith. Keep in mind there are some corporate systems that require a particular browser to be used (typically Internet Explorer or Firefox).

The browsers included as standard for Windows (Internet Explorer/Edge) and Apple OSX (Safari) both work fine for mainstream use.

The most popular browser at Griffith is Google Chrome, probably due to the additional enhancements it provides when using Google Apps and services.

You can install Chrome and Firefox on staff Windows machines from the “Installable Applications” link on the Windows Start Menu.
