System requirements and browser support

Supported browsers

  • The 2D app supports the following browsers:
    • Chrome
    • Firefox
    • Safari 3 and higher
    • Edge
      Note:

      Edge runs as a Windows modern app, which is different from Internet Explorer. Consequently, it has network isolation by default for security reasons. If you receive an error message of Hmm, we can't reach this page., read the blog for a solution.

    • Internet Explorer 9 and higher. Compatibility View is not supported.
      Note:

      Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) does not support using IE9 to access Portal for ArcGIS with web-tier authentication. This is due to the limitation of IE9, which does not support CORS.

    • iOS Safari
    • Chrome for Android
  • The 3D app supports the following browsers. Be aware that there is no mobile or iPad support for the 3D app.
    • Chrome
    • Firefox
    • Safari 7.2 and higher
    • Edge
    • Internet Explorer 11
    Caution:

    Using the 3D app in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS requires a desktop web browser that supports WebGL. The latest versions of the most common desktop browsers have WebGL built in. To test if your browser has WebGL enabled, see get.webgl.org. To troubleshoot WebGL-related issues, see WebGL troubleshooting. Also see the ArcGIS Online topic specific to rendering scene viewer features for additional information.
