IT Notification – Google Chrome Support (04/30/15)

IT Notification:

As of April 2015, starting with Chrome Version 42, Google has dropped NPAPI (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface) support. Since the NPAPI plugin is now disabled in the Chrome browser, applications utilizing Silverlight and Java based plugin applications will no longer work in Chrome.

What does that mean for you? Applications such as WebNow (browser-based version of the ImageNow), GRCC Analytics (Data Warehouse), and the Leave of Absence eForm, will no longer work in Chrome. Should you need to access these applications, please use a different browser such as Internet Explore or Mozilla Firefox.

Looking ahead, the GRCC IT Department will no longer be including Chrome as a default program in our standard computer images. However, the browser is still supported and will be available to those who wish to use it through our Software Center application deployment tool.

If you have any questions, please contact IT Customer Support at 234-HELP (4357).

Any future updates will be posted at: Also available through http://www.grcc.edu/informationtechnology/customersupport, https://grccitstatus.wordpress.com, https://twitter.com/grccithelp, and www.facebook.com/grccit
