Some issues in browsers & its fixes


  • Icons for manifest.json, doesn't need to have many icons. Adding 192px size icon will scale perfectly for most of the devices.


  • In safari mobile browser, add to home screen will add black background for icon if its in PNG format. Make it as JPG to work.
  • Safari doesn't support manifest.json for add to home screen yet.

UC Browser

  • Meta tag browsermode is not working.
  • Link tag icon for home screen is not working.
