Browser Types Supported by Reporting Services
In Reporting Services, you use a browser to run reports and Report Manager, a Web-based tool for managing and viewing report server content.
Although you can export reports to the formats of other desktop applications, the default rendering format for reports is HTML 3.2 or HTML 4.0; the browser type and version determine which format is used. Users can view reports with any browser that supports HTML 3.2 or HTML 4.0; however, functionality may vary depending on the browser and whether scripting is enabled.
