BrowserLab v1.6.2 with Firefox 5 and Chrome 13 support is now live

This afternoon, we released BrowserLab v1.6.2 which includes the following changes:

  • Chrome 13 (Windows) support has been added
  • Firefox 5 (Windows) support has been added
  • A fix that improves BrowserLab’s support for sites built with the SilverStripe CMS
  • Additional bug fixes and improvements

Someday in the not too distant future, we’re going to remove Firefox 3.0 and 3.6 from BrowserLab. If you’re wondering why we would remove support for older browsers, it is to keep BrowserLab lean and mean, and keep our backend costs in check. We can’t keep older browsers around forever, and we’ve seen significant drop-off in market share for these older versions. If you have objections to this, please let us know why. You can let us know how you feel by posting here in the Comments, or on our BrowserLab User Forums.

    Well, it seems to be buggy now on Chrome 12.

      Hi Damien,

      If this ever happens, we recommend clearing the Browser cache (empty the cache and clear cookies) and restart the Browser. Then the issue will go away. We rarely see this, but it sometimes happens, and this is the simple solution.
