What version of browser control are the Office 2013 apps using? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the early beta documentation it stated that the Apps for Office that an Internet
    Explorer 9.0 browser control was used to render the interface. Is this still the fact at RTM because it seems that on my Windows 8 machine the Apps for Office are using Internet Explorer 10. So will an App for Office use the installed Internet Explorer version?

  • Hi, Jorisp

    The Internet Explorer control depends on which version of Internet Explorer the user has installed on their machine. So you should test your apps with both. Also keep in mind that apps for Excel also work in the Excel Web App, which can be opened in other browsers such as Chrome and Firefox, so you should make sure your app works in those too.

    Thanks for the question!

  • How do you test mutiple browsers directly for your Office app in Visual Studio 2012? Is the only way actually publishing the Excel with the App to SharePoint Online?
