Web Browser Requirements
Webpression is written to be standards compliant as far as possible, so should function with any modern web browser. Unfortunately Internet Explorer has a number of issues with support for web standards, particularly in older versions. If you must use Internet Explorer, if at all possible make sure that you are using version 8.0 or later, as this will ensure that what you see is most likely to be consistent with users of other web browsers. Internet Explorer 6 or older is not supported for editing purposes.
Webpression has been tested most extensively with Mozilla Firefox, and this is the browser used at Create IT for testing and development purposes as this browser is free, and available for most operating systems and in a variety of languages. Webpression has also been tested with recent versions of Opera, Chrome and Safari and should also function with these browsers.
