GlobalSight is a web-based application that runs in your browser.

Users Software
All Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 or later. Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 and 11 for tabbed browsing. Other browsers are supported with best effort only.
All Adobe Acrobat Reader for reading PDF versions of documents
Project Managers/Customers Some parts of the application require Java. You are prompted to install, if needed, or you can also download directly from the Oracle website. The versions supported are:
  • Latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.8

Generally, most browsers running on 64-bit Windows are 32-bit applications, thus you also need install the 32-bit (i586) version of Java. You can install both 64 and 32 bit versions without conflict. If you have turned on "Enable Enhanced Protected Mode" in Internet Options on 64-bit Windows, then Internet Explorer will run as 64-bit application.

Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and 64-bit Mozilla Firefox don't support Java plugin.

For any security issues using Java, consider adjusting your security levels as described here.
