MangoLassi Compatibility Testing



  • I know that there are some discussions about where ML is working and where it is not. We are trying to track down and identify potential problems. We know that some AV and firewalls can break the Websockets connection making the page load as blank. We've heard some rumors of other problems but have not found anything solid yet. One concern is, of course, browser testing. We have solidly tested ML on all modern browsers and it seems to work flawlessly, at a browser level, across the board. Testing old browsers and platforms is, of course, tough because we do not necessarily have access to every combination that people may be using out there on the Internet. If you all could assist us in this, it would be great.



  • At the moment, I am posting from a Windows XP SP3 / IE 8 test machine and am having no problems at all. I am actually quite surprised, I was prepared for this combination to be too old to work. Very happy that the XP users out there are going to be okay. I had heard a rumor of IE 9 issues so very glad to find that even older is working.



  • Nothing too old here. I've testing Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 with FF and Chrome. No issues for me. Safari on iOS has been great.



  • Firefox 27.0 on XP is working just fine too.



  • Chrome on iOS has worked well for me.

    Doesn't that use Safari under the hood? I heard that on some site (oh yeah, this one) recently.



  • No issues for me..except if Internet connection is problem, if i send message it shows like this:
    Me: How are you?
    Me: How are you?

    I get that once in a while but very rarely and only when I am talking to you 😉

    Basically, yes, all iOS browsers are the same underneath.

    Thoughts on Chrome and Safari Speed
    It is not surprising that both browsers perform similarly, since both run WebKit, the browser engine developed by Apple and the only engine that Apple allows browsers to use on iOS devices. As for why Safari might be a tad slower than Chrome, the only thing that comes to my mind is that Safari might be loading some other elements simultaneously, like its Reader mode, which renders a text-only version of any website.

    Thanks, good to know that there is a real reference on that. What a weird thing, then, to have multiple browsers. Just to make people feel like they have choice.



  • @scottalanmiller chrome still useful to get sync and such. So there are reasons to use it. Also UI differences and gestures, etc.

    Oh, ok. I don't really use sync to my iPhone so hadn't thought about that. But that makes sense.
