Default web browser

To be able to work in some web based services it might be wise to change to another default web browser than what is delivered with the operating system.

In KTH Windows, Microsoft Edge is the default browser, while in KTH Mac it is Safari. You can change the default browser at any time to the one you prefer or to the one recommended for a specific service.

Examples of services and the browsers they work best with:

Service Recommended web browser
Agresso, EFH Firefox
Canvas Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari
Efecte Edge Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari

Chrome and Edge

In KTH Windows and in KTH Mac we have support for the most common browsers.
