Recommended browsers for Legal databases

The Library recommends using the Chrome or Edge browsers to access Legal databases.
In general, do not use Internet Explorer as it is no longer supported and many databases, for example JADE and Lexis Advance will not display correctly in it.

This table, provides specific information about the best browser to use with each database.
