What browsers are supported? Why not Internet Explorer?

We aim to support all modern HTML5-compliant browsers, including Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. In addition, our user interface responds to various screen sizes in order to facilitate a positive experience in mobile browsers, such as those bundled with Android OS and iOS. Supporting the various quirks of each browser can be difficult. We are working hard to iron out any issues, but would love your help. If you notice a bug, please let us know by submitting a support ticket.

Regrettably, all versions of Internet Explorer (including versions 10 and 11) suffer serious shortcomings in their support of current CSS standards that result in various issues for the modern Web Components technology we are using to build The World Table. We feel confident that the Web Components standard, which was recently ratified by each of the major browser vendors including Apple, Google, Mozilla, and Microsoft, will quickly become an essential technology for modern web applications.

We understand, however, that switching browsers in order to participate in The World Table is an inconvenience to those for whom Internet Explorer is currently the browser of choice or necessity. The good news is that Microsoft has addressed many of the limitations of Internet Explorer in its new Edge browser, which comes bundled with Windows 10. For users of earlier versions of Windows, browsers like Chrome and Firefox provide significant improvements in performance and standards support that provide a superior experience for many modern web applications. We have made the decision to focus on these browsers in order to significantly reduce the time required for further development of The World Table.
