The Mercury desktop was created slightly differently to the browser version of Mercury, to allow integration with Microsoft Word so you could edit documents on the fly.
Now with the Word Online integration, the Mercury Browser also contains the same functionality.
The Mercury Browser is now the preferred platform. You can continue to use the Mercury Desktop for the time being, however we will begin the process of deprecating the the Desktop version over the coming months.
