supported browsers

Post by martinsw » Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:53 am

Hi,

I've noticed from previous versions of the Ranorex release notes that the version of firefox supported is always stated in each release. I do a lot of cross browser testing so can you please confirm what versions of the other browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari) are currently supported?

Is there any particular reason why the supported firefox version is always stated in the release notes but not the supported version numbers of the other web browsers? If not stated in the relase notes, can I therefore assume that the latest browser version is supported by default?

Thanks, Martin

I would like to second this, as I agree with and was thinking the same thing as MartinSW.

I'd like to take it one step further though, and ask that you have a special section on your support page that list the current version of the app and all the supported products and their versions. Browsers, but also other things, like Windows versions and other things (like Flex and Silverlight, mobile platforms and OS versions)

Thanks,

Aracknid

Thanks Bernhard,

Aracknid's suggestion of having this information accessible on the web page somewhere is a good one and I think it would be useful. Can this be done? If not, can each version of the release notes contain a supported version information section where all the information you have provided below is communicated?

Thanks,

Martin
