Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 supports several commonly used Web browsers. However, certain browsers might cause some Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 functionality to be downgraded, limited, or available only through alternative steps. In some cases, functionality might be unavailable for noncritical administrative tasks.

This article provides details about the ActiveX controls and components that are used in rendering features and content in these browsers. This information is useful for troubleshooting issues and for supporting end users in accomplishing tasks that they need to perform by using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.
