We recommend using a supported browser to get all of Gmail's features. If you use a browser other than those listed below, you'll be automatically directed to the basic HTML view of Gmail.
- Google Chrome (current stable version): download: Windows Mac Linux Best Option, Supports all of Gmail's Features.
- Firefox 3.6+: download: Windows Mac Linux 2nd best option, more compatible than Internet Explorer.
- Internet Explorer 8.0+: download: Windows 3rd best option, has some issues with compatibility view.
- Safari 4.0+ download: Mac Windows
- Opera: We don't test Opera, but believe it works with all of Gmail's features: download: Windows Mac Linux
However, there are two exceptions:
- Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari do not support desktop notifications.
- Offline Gmail only works for Google Chrome. Learn more about offline Gmail here.
