I saw this thread but I am not sure if I understand what people are suggesting to do or if it matches my situation? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1478664&highlight=sharepoint

For work, much of documentation exists on Sharepoint in online spreadsheets, calendars and similar. If I try and access via Firefox/Chromium these pages, I just get a never-ending "Processing" dialogue that goes around in circles but never connects.

Do I need to do something with "certificates"? And if so how? I'm not an admin for this Sharepoint content, just trying to read it. Do I need to install Wine, IE and something to view Sharepoint? Will that consume lots of laptop resources and be slow/buggy? Thanks!

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
