Second Site has been tested on the following browsers. The "+" notation in the version column indicates that Second Site's HTML pages are compatible with the indicated version and all subsequent versions.

Browser Version Comments
Firefox 3+ Firefox is a great choice for viewing SS pages.
Chrome various Chrome is a great choice for viewing SS pages. Chrome version numbers are updated frequently so it's hard to keep the version numbers in this table up to date.
Internet Explorer 9+ IE9+ is standards compliant and does a good job of rendering SS pages.
Internet Explorer 8 IE8 is mostly standards compliant and does an OK job of rendering SS pages.
Internet Explorer 7 There are many areas where IE7 is not standards compliant and there are many bugs left over from IE6. The CSS and HTML generated by Second Site has been adjusted to work around them. Some dynamic features are disabled in IE7.
Internet Explorer 6 Second Site Version 5+ does not support IE6 or previous.

Opera 7+ Opera does a good job of rendering SS pages.
Safari 5+ Recent versions of Safari do a good job of rendering SS pages.

Printing

With the exception of chart pages, modern browsers will print pages written by Second Site fairly well. Browsers don't do a great job of pagination, especially wide content, and so printing wide charts is beyond their capability. Some browsers do not print background colors unless directed to do so via a user preference.

JavaScript

Second Site pages use some JavaScript to provide special features. If a visitor to your site does not have a JavaScript-enabled browser, or has JavaScript turned off, the features that depend on JavaScript will not be available. The pages fail gracefully; the pages will look fine and everything except the special features will work properly.

Maps are an exception to the above rule; maps are rendered via JavaScript and if JavaScript is disabled, the area reserved for the map will be empty.
