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 whichever browser you are using. Flash is used minimally but it is not required.

As of May 23, 2019, we support the most recent versions of Flash and popular web browsers:

  • Microsoft IE 11
  • Chrome 73 and 74
  • Safari 11 and 12
  • Firefox 65 and 66 (Extended Releases are not supported)
  • Flash 31 and 32 (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:
