What Browsers Is Google Web Toolkit Tested Against?

- 1 answer

I'm very interested in GWT and I'm curious which browsers it's tested against? The info is not painfully easy enough for me to find and I haven't gotten an answer on the group (I haven't waited long but messages get buried there fast).

This is really important to me... I would assume google's standards are high (probably higher than mine) but I'd like to know more.

See Cross-Browser support:

GWT shields you from worrying too much about cross-browser incompatibilities. If you stick to built-in widgets and composites, your applications will work similarly on the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. (Opera, too, most of the time.) DHTML user interfaces are remarkably quirky, though, so make sure to test your applications thoroughly on every browser.


Out of personal experience I can tell you that almost all browsers I've tested will work:

  • Opera 9 or better;
  • Firefox 2 or better;
  • Internet Explorer 6 or better;
  • Safari 3 or better;
  • Konqueror - as bundled in KDE 4.3 - the 3.5.x series does not seem to work;
