JavaScript Web browsers


We categorize browsers by their rendering engine. For us as developers it does not matter how a browser handles bookmarks, we care how it renders the webpage and how it executes javascript.

We try to support standard browsers as much as we can. They account for over 98% of the webbrowsers in use today:

Rendering Engine Browsers Version
Trident Internet Explorer since version 4 (4, 5, 5.5 and 6)
Gecko Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape ... since 2003
KHTML / WebCore Safari, Konqueror since ?
Presto Opera since 7.11 (7, 8)



Trident (MSHTML-Modern)

Microsoft Internet Explorer

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx


Tasman


Internet Explorer for Mac

http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/ie/
This is Microsoft's browser for the Macintosh. It was developed independently from the Windows version, so their rendering engines don't work the same. Microsoft droped IE deveplopment for the mac, the last versions are v5.2.3 for OS X and v5.1.7 for OS 8/9. There are still users of this browser, though they should disappear more and more since there are much better browsers for this OS by now. If possible, we make our components compatible with it, but it causes a lot of headache and workarounds for workarounds.


Gecko These Browsers are all based on the "Gecko" rendering engine.

Gecko is the widely known name, pushed by the Netscape corporation. Other names are Mozilla Layout Engine, NGT, NGLayout, XPFE, XPToolkit and Raptor.

Netscape

http://browser.netscape.com/
Netscape Navigator, Netscape Communicator
Netscape is the commercial distribution of Mozilla for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Its user interface is tuned for end-users rather than developers, and it includes additional features such as AIM and a spell checker.
Netscape 8 uses both rendering engines Gecko (Mozilla) and Trident (MSIE).

K-Meleon

http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/
K-Meleon is an extremely fast, customizable, lightweight web browser for the win32 (Windows) platform based on the Gecko layout engine.

Epiphany

http://www.gnome.org/projects/epiphany/
Epiphany is the web browser for the GNOME desktop. Its goal is to be simple and easy to use. Epiphany ties together many GNOME components in order to let you focus on the Web content, instead of the browser application. As part of the GNOME project, Epiphany is Free Software.

OmniWeb

http://www.omnigroup.com/applications/omniweb/
