What web browsers does Lightyear support

What web browsers does Lightyear support?

Lightyear is built and tested with Google Chrome in mind, so we strongly recommend using Google Chrome where possible. If you don't have it installed, it's a free download and you can get it from the link below.

As Lightyear is a web app, you should still be able to use it with any other major web browser, such as Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Safari. If you are using one of these browsers and are facing issues that may prevent you using Lightyear, checkout Google Chrome and see if the issue persists. If you simply can't use Google Chrome for any reason and are facing issues in a different web browser, click here to visit our support site and open a support ticket.

We strongly recommend using Lightyear on the most up to date version of your chosen browser, which are:
  • Chrome (Chrome 87)
  • Firefox (Firefox 81)
  • Safari (Safari 14.0)
  • Edge (Edge 87)
Please ensure that you keep up to date with all updates available for your browser.
