iModel.js strives to support as many modern browsers as possible, though it requires complete JavaScript ES6 support. The quality of the web browser's WebGL implementation has a substantial impact on display performance.

  • Chrome (recommended for development)
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Opera
  • "New" Chromium-based Edge

Note: Internet Explorer and "Old" Edge are not supported

Note: Other Chromium-based browsers will likely work fine, but are untested.
