Kickoff has been tested in the following browsers:
|Chrome (latest)||Firefox (latest)||Safari (latest)||Edge (latest)||Opera (latest)|
We also support older versions of Internet Explorer but the support is limited. For example, the Kickoff grid relies on flexbox so Modernizr is needed to detect for it and then we can provide a fallback.
