Tested browsers listing???

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

How much of a job would it be to make a 'sticky' list of the operating system/browser versions known to work and not work.

 

sort of setting the standard as minimum hardware/software required???

 

Just askin......

We support all a-grade browsers.  All of the platforms/browsers listed at that link are tested to work well with the site (and that list represents over 99% of visitors).

 

The only confirmed issues within that browser list are with some anti-virus/anti-spyware utilities installed.  We'll certainly have a look at seeing if there are any easy fixes to those problems, but when external programs are interfering with the normal operation of the browser, it's incredibly difficult to track down.

Wondered what that taste was...!

 

No, it's definitely much faster. How would you know, mister Megabits?

New Web Inspector in 4.0 is nice.  

 

Anyway, times seem similar to me, though performance is tad slow this evening

The big difference is in javascript execution times, which won't show up in Web Inspector.

I can't read that graphic very well... what are the elements that take all the time? What are the specs for them? (DNS time, download time, etc.)

I'll take your word for that, Frank

 

I have 3.x on one machine and 4.x on another, and didn't see much difference loading the editor.  I have the full screen editor defaulted in my profile.

 

Either way, I only expect performance will improve...

You probably can tell, it'll take about 3 captures to gather everything.  When I get, time I'll see if there is a better way to log that information and fire it off to you.

Ars has a decent summary of Safari 4's features -- the most interesting being the SquirrelFish JavaScript engine -- "the fastest implementation of JavaScript ever.".

 

Google Chrome and Firefox 3.1 both include similar javascript acceleration technology.

Perhaps similar, but Safari 4 knocks the pants off the Firefox 3.1 beta.

The TraceMonkey JavaScript engine is actually turned off in the Firefox 3.1 beta.  It's supposed to offer similar performance once it's ready to go.
