While Canvas works better than Blackboard did in different browsers, it still works best in Firefox or Chrome. Did you notice that all of the desktop shortcuts on computer lab and classroom podiums for Canvas launch it in Firefox? To read about the browsers that Canvas supports, click this help guide.
