As we get ready for the final move of lesserwrong.com to lesswrong.com, we're addressing various browser compatibility issues.

We've recently updated some compatibility tools that fixed several of the older bugs. If you've run into  compatibility bugs in the past, and are using one of our (newly) supported browsers, it'd be helpful if you tried using lesserwrong.com again and see if you run into any issues.

The site does require javascript to login and interact, although we'll try to make it a fairly friendly reading experience, and users who prefer a non-javascript experience can use saturn's greaterwrong.com.

The oldest browsers we're officially trying to support are:

  • Firefox 45
  • Chrome 49
  • Safari 9
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Edge
  • Samsung Internet 6

(These are all the browsers that make up more than .4% of our userbase. If there turn out to be major issues for other browsers we'll try to look into them but can't necessarily promise to prioritize them all uniformly highly. It's still useful to have the bugs collected so we have a sense of the spread of issues across various devices)

Let us know what issues you've run into. Please include your browser and OS (and version). Bonus points if you try to replicate the issue in another browser to help triangulate what software is causing problems.
