On January 7th, 2013, we will be discontinuing support for Internet Explorer (IE) versions 7 and earlier so we can spend more time making Paperless Pipeline better for everyone.
Why We’re No Longer Supporting IE7
Paperless Pipeline is built using modern web technologies and many of these technologies aren’t compatible with legacy browsers like IE7. Currently, we commit a large chunk of our development time to supporting older browsers, which takes away from the time we’re able to spend improving Paperless Pipeline and introducing new features.
By discontinuing support for older browsers like Internet Explorer 7, we’ll be able to dedicate more time to making Paperless Pipeline better, faster, and more useful.
Will This Affect You?

If you’re using Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer 8 or higher—you don’t need to do anything. You can stop reading right here…
If You Use Internet Explorer 7
If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or below, we recommend you upgrade your browser to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
Download and install the latest version of Internet Explorer here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/download-ie
We know there are business reasons why some folks need to continue using Internet Explorer 7, however. If that’s the case, you’re in luck. Google has a product called Chrome Frame that allows older versions of Internet Explorer to work more like a modern web browser.
What is Google Chrome Frame?
Google Chrome Frame is a free plug-in for Internet Explorer. It speeds up your web experience and provides advanced features for sites like Paperless Pipeline that support it.
Chrome Frame doesn’t negatively affect sites that rely on older versions of Internet Explorer, either, so it’s safe to install for everyone.
To Install Google Chrome Frame
If you’re an IE user that has decided to install Google Chrome Frame, you can get started here: http://www.google.com/chromeframe
You may have to restart your computer after the installation.
We think Google Chrome Frame is a great solution for offices and individuals stuck using older versions of Internet Explorer for one reason or another.
