Turnitin to End Support for Internet Explorer in July 2014
Posted 1.17.2014

Turnitin will no longer test or fix features and bugs found only in Internet Explorer 8 starting July 1, 2014. This does not mean that Turnitin will suddenly stop working in IE8, only that they can no longer guarantee full functionality long term. We hope that this six month notice will provide Internet Explorer 8 users time to prepare and move to a current version of one of these supported industry standard browsers:

Internet Explorer 9 | Firefox | Chrome | Safari
