SmartAdvocate was designed to run in a browser (more commonly referred to as 'browser based'). This means that it uses your browser (currently full functionality is supported in Internet Explorer version 11 and above, Edge and Google Chrome version 38 or above) to render the information on your screen. When you open new pages in SmartAdvocate, the new page opens in a new browser tab. This design allows the user to simultaneously have an almost unlimited number of pages/files open in SmartAdvocate. There are times, however, when the user may wish to have a new page or file opened in an existing window.
