Guide: Recommended Browsers for Authoring in CommonSpot

Recommended Web Browsers

Web browsers change all the time so while we can recommend browsers that will work well for updating your website with CommonSpot, your best bet is to keep your browser updated. Ideally, CommonSpot should work in all modern up-to-date browsers, but updates to browsers can also cause problems so it is a good idea to check multiple browsers when you are seeing issues.

We recommend using the latest versions Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer to author in CommonSpot. We do not recommend attempting to author webpages using browsers in mobile devices.

If you are maintaining any website, however,  it is a good practice to have as many browsers as possible downloaded to your computer for testing purposes. It is also a good idea to learn how to use developer tools in your browser.

If you have any questions or issues regarding browsers, let us know in the Get Help section of this site.
