Browser Support FAQ
Which web browsers does Weebly support?
Weebly supports the last two versions of these browsers:
Why doesn’t Weebly support older browsers?
As software makers release new versions of their browsers, they stop updating the older versions. These older versions gradually lose compatibility with current web technology. Support for older, incompatible browsers must be dropped in order to incorporate the newest, best, and safest technology.
Why isn’t Internet Explorer supported?
Internet Explorer (IE) 11 was released in 2013, and Microsoft has not released any feature updates in years, which puts this browser well behind others in terms of its ability to support new technologies. While Microsoft will continue to provide support for existing users of IE 11 for a few more years, the new default browser for Windows users is Microsoft Edge.
How do I know if my browser is going to work or not?
You can check which browser you’re using on this website. If you’re using one of the browsers cited above and it’s up to date, then you’re all set!
What if my browser doesn’t meet the requirements?
In that case, you should update to the most recent version. If the newest update available to you is more than two versions old, try using a different browser instead. There may be a version of Google Chrome or Firefox that will work for you. If you’re unable to do that, you should consider upgrading the operating system on your computer or even the hardware itself. It’s possible that your system software or your computer are simply too outdated to run a modern browser.
Is this issue limited to use of the Weebly editor, or will this also affect my website visitors?
If a visitor to your website is using an unsupported browser, then yes, they may have a problem. That said, people who are using a very old browser are likely to experience difficulties at almost any website they visit.
What about mobile browsers?
The latest versions of Chrome for Android and Safari for iOS are supported for all published sites. The website editor itself is not intended for use with a mobile browser, so you must either use the Weebly app or log into your account from a computer to access the editor and dashboard features.
Is there anything I need to do on my end?
Make sure your browser is up to date and get into the habit of installing software updates whenever they are available. Software updates often contain security patches and other critical fixes, so it’s a good idea to install them as soon as possible.
