Browser compatibility

MIDOP uses the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) language for creating interactive graphical elements such as maps or diagrams. Such format is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standard established since 1999 used for describing vector graphic objects on the Web. Its diffusion is slowly growing, but still has some issue on browsers that don’t fully support nowadays W3C standards.
Below a browser compatibility matrix resuming our tests:

  Operating systems
Browser rendering engines Windows MacOSX PPC MacOSX Intel Linux
Gecko based
(Firefox, Camino, Epiphany 2.2.x)
OK OK OK OK
Internet Explorer 6.x, 7.x, 8.x OK 1 - - -
Internet Explorer 9.x+ OK - - -
WebKit based
(Safari, Chrome)
OK OK 2 OK -
Opera OK OK OK OK
KHTML based
(Konqueror)
- - - NO

1 Internet Explorer prior to version 9 requires a plug-in in order to show SVG content; MIDOP has been successfully tested using the Adobe SVG Viewer plug-in (http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer)
2 On PowerPC based Macs (Macs sold prior to year 2006) Safari for OSX have problems if the plug-in Adobe SVG Viewer is installed.
