This page contains the minimum version requirements of Web browser software for use with SAS 9.3 (TS1M0 and TS1M1). It is possible to use updated versions of the third-party software that is listed below. See SAS® Third-Party Software Requirements - Baseline and Higher Support for more details.
The following table lists the Web browsers that are supported for use with SAS® Foundation software and SAS client applications.
For UNIX, VMS, and MVS operating environments, SAS 9.3 Foundation assumes that you will use the SAS Remote Browser server to display Help and SAS OnlineDoc® as well as to view ODS HTML output. The remote-browser server runs on your Windows or Linux desktop machine, and it displays output using one of the browsers listed in the table below to display output.
For Windows operating environments, SAS 9.3 Foundation uses Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox for Help and SAS OnlineDoc®. To display ODS output, Windows can use either Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or an embedded browser.
You can download the Remote Browser Server from the Software Downloads page.
