This gives site designers news about browsers and design, helps find browsers, offers design resources, lists Inter­net stats, and sells books & ebooks for building effective websites. Also, as wise font use is key to good design, this also reports new & up­dat­ed fonts, especially free flexible fonts. First published in Sep. 1998, this is up­dated each Fri­day night (ET), with news up­dated daily.

The Focus

This focuses on browsers wanted to test web­sites, mainly Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, & Vivaldi.

This also focuses on flexible fonts useful in crafting websites.

There is much good in­for­mation elsewhere about browsers & fonts, & no need to “reïnvent the wheel”, so the Browser News concisely reports news, with links to details.

Your Browser(anchor)

This lists information about your browser. It is mainly of interest to those who wish to make browser-detection scripts.

More details are available on the Resources Your Browser page.

Note: some browsers report the major version number only; minor version numbers are hidden. For example, Internet Ex­plorer 11.0.140 falsely says that it is Internet Explorer 11.0, and Firefox 68.0.2 falsely says that it is Firefox 68.0. This makes it im­pos­si­ble for browser sniffers to report the correct version vectors.

Note: some browsers report the wrong version vectors in their user​Agent strings. For example, Vivaldi 1.15.1147.64 says that it is 1.96.1147.64. This makes it harder for browser sniffers to determine the correct version vectors.

Note: the version of the Brave browser is the current version of the Chrome browser.
