Browser Requirements

The Whooshkaa platform is web-based, here are the browsers we recommend for optimized results!

Supported Web Browsers

The Whooshkaa platform user interfaces are built to be used with a web browser. Due to the constant advancement of these technologies and in order to provide our users the full capability and performance, we have to limit support for older browsers. Our goal is to not distinguish between the type of devices and to make the platform responsive for any device.

As this is a constantly moving field, the below may change in line with the changes in policy or capability from the browser developers. That is, as new browsers get released, older browsers reach end of life and support from the manufacturers, we will no longer be able to support these older browsers. Our platform supports the most recent versions for both desktop & mobile.

Please note that some functionality is not possible in some situations as the browser software may explicitly prohibit due to security settings. We aim to inform the users in these scenarios prior to using.

Whooshkaa Dashboard & Web Player supports 

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Apple Safari
  • Microsoft Edge (Chromium)

The supported versions for these browsers are the current (latest) version and (for at least 6 months) the next-previous version (i.e. the latest 2 versions).

As of January 2020, Whooshkaa has dropped support for Dashboard use of all Internet Explorer versions, including version 11.  Limited support exists for the Whooshkaa Web Player, limited to audio playback only.

Different browsers

Other browsers and older versions of above browsers may still function, but will experience degraded functionality and performance. If you need support for a browser that is not listed above (or do experience difficulties using any of the browsers listed), please let us know.

In case you wanted to know....

💡 The WorldWideWeb (not to be confused with the World Wide Web) was the first browser ever created in 1990 by W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee, then renamed Nexus to differentiate from the actual World Wide Web
