Additionally, Costpoint 6 was built to run solely on IE.. yet, not everyone is a fan of Internet Explorer. There are many of us, myself included who prefer to use Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. Costpoint 7.0.1 is a real god send for us Apple users who no longer have to revert to Windows, since there hasn't been a version of IE available for Apple in over a decade.
