We recommend using the most recent computer specifications for the best user experience in Bridge. Bridge will still operate with the minimum specifications, but you may experience slower loading times.

Computer Specifications

Bridge and its hosting infrastructure is designed for maximum compatibility and minimal requirements.

Supported Browsers

Because it's built using web standards, Bridge runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser.

Bridge supports the last two versions of every browser release. We highly recommend updating to the newest version of whatever browser you are using. Flash is used minimally but it is not required.

As of June 23, 2017, we support the most recent versions of Flash and popular web browsers:

 

  • Microsoft: IE11 and Edge
  • Chrome 58 and 59
  • Safari 9 and 10
  • Firefox 53 and 54 (Extended Releases are not supported)
  • Flash 25 and 26 (viewing audio/video and uploading files)

 

Desktop Browser Updates

There are a couple of different ways to update your desktop browser.

1. Every time you open your browser, it will check to make sure it is using the most current version. If it is not updated, your browser will prompt you with a notification and walk you through the update process.

2. Download the latest version of your desktop browser directly. Click the name of your browser below to visit your browser's download page:
