* Advanced Features
Sharepoint is a Microsoft product which relies on Microsoft Technologies like ActiveX to do many of the advanced Sharepoint features (eg uploads, editing, intregration of other MS products).   IE is currently the only browser that can fully utilize the advanced feature set of Sharepoint. 

If a more browser independent platform is required, UWO ITS provides instructors free access to WebCT Vista.
