Webmail by Google Supported Browsers

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: WindowsMac or Linux - Best option, supports all of Gmail's features.
  • Firefox 3.6+: download: WindowsMac or 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 or Windows.
  • Opera: We don't test Opera, but believe it works with all of Gmail's features: download: Windows, Mac or Linux.

However, there are two exceptions:

Regardless of your browser type, you must have cookies enabled to use Gmail. If your browser supports it, please also enable JavaScript.

Internet Explorer - enabling Javascript - enabling cookies

Google Chrome - enabling Javascript - enabling cookies
