Here at Expensify we are always trying to use the best of the web. We use cutting edge technology
to offer the best experience possible to our users.

Unfortunately, not everybody can enjoy the benefits that these new technologies offer because not all browsers support them.One of these browsers is Internet Explorer. The latest version of Internet Explorer is great, but the popularity of older versions makes our work very hard.

At Expensify, we target mainly Google Chrome. It is fast, secure and always up to date. At the same time, we understand that not everybody wants to install Google Chrome, or can because of their company’s policies. We try to balance between having a great product and making sure Expensify is working well with all browsers.

Google offers a great solution for Internet Explorer Users: Google Chrome Frame.

Google Chrome Frame is an open source plug-in that seamlessly brings Google Chrome’s open web technologies and speedy JavaScript engine to any version of Internet Explorer.

You can install Chrome Frame on your Windows computer using Internet Explorer 6, 7 , 8 and 9.

Google Chrome Frame gets updated automatically and silently without prompting. You don’t need to be an administrator on your computer to install it.

To enjoy the best of Expensify we highly recommend installing it.

For more information on the drawbacks of older versions of IE, I recommend Smashing Magazine’s article on upgrading web browsers.

In case you haven’t already heard, Expensify’s Web Receipts extension for Google Chrome helps you capture receipts from the websites you visit in just one click.
