TEAS is a web-based application that requires a web browser version at or above that of: Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 6.0, FireFox 3.0, Safari 3.0. While the USPTO does not specifically endorse these products; these are the browsers that support various TEAS features, namely, frames, JavaScript, and file upload. TEAS filers should check their web browser settings for SSLv3 and TLSv1. The box labeled "Use SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0" should be CHECKED and the box labeled "Use SSL 2.0" should be UNCHECKED.
