To optimally browse FetLife we highly recommend using our supported browsers:
- Chrome 46+
- Safari 8+
- Edge 12+
- Firefox 42+
- Android Browser 4.4+
What if my current browser is not on the list above?
If you are on a slightly older browser (or on a modern alternative browser), chances are everything will work just fine. In case you experience issues over time or are perving through an old browser, we recommend you upgrade it or change it. We recommend installing these browsers:
If you are already on a supported browser but you are still encountering issues, we recommend upgrading your browser to the latest version.
How do I upgrade my browser to the latest version?
Each browser does upgrading differently:
- Internet Explorer: We recommend switching to any of the browsers above. (read here why)
- Android Browser: We recommend switching to Google Chrome
What about my bookmarks, history, etc.?
You will be given an option to import existing data from your old browser during install.
Why all this?
FetLife's engineering team follows development and security best practices but outdated browsers can't keep up with them because they lack the latest technology improvements.
By upgrading your browser you'll not only help us pushing the product forward faster, but also experience a safer and faster browsing experience across the web.
