MGO System Requirements

Browser Type
MGO must be used with Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or higher. (Download the latest version at microsoft.com.)

Computer
Minnesota Grantmakers Online is designed for optimal performance when used with a PC. The application will work with Apple computers, but not at optimal performance.

Internet Access Speed
Because Minnesota Grantmakers Online provides access to a large database with large, complex search functions, the application is designed for optimal performance when used with Internet access speeds of 128K or higher (ISDN, DSL, Cable Modem, T-1, T-3). MGO can be used with Internet access speeds as low as 56K, but its performance will be slow.
