Cross browser support – What DOES it mean and what SHOULD it mean?
What are the popular browsers?
As you would expect Internet Explorer is far far the most popular browser. This is hardly suprising as most PCs are supplied with Internet Explorer ready installed on them. To use another browser, a user usually needs to download it onto their machine.
However, Firefox is rapidly becoming more and more popular, in fact over 20% of people on the internet use Firefox. Have a look at the figures*
- 67.55% – Microsoft Internet Explorer
- 21.53% – FireFox
- 8.29% – Safari
- 1.12% – Google Chrome
- 0.70% Â – Opera
- 0.57% – Netscape
- 0.22% – Other
Our website designers test each website on the following browsers to ensure that they workfor the widest possible audience.
- Internet Explorer 8.0, 7.0, 6.0.
- Firefox 3.0 . 2.0
- Safari 3.2, 3.1.
If a client requires support for other browsers we will discuss this before the start of the project.
