- Rank is in scale 0-10 where 0 means totally broken and 10 means perfect.
- If a browser version is not mentioned, it has not been tested. We recommend upgrading to the latest version of your browser.
We certainly do not recommend using Internet Explorer 6.0 - although Wikidot sites should work fine with this browser, this has been achieved by using many tricks and workarounds but also a lot of sacrifices of clean solutions introduced by new standards which are not supported only by this browser.
As clearly stated above, we highly recommend Mozilla Firefox which is free, very secure, extensible etc.
