This gives site designers news about browsers and design, helps find browsers, offers design resources, reports Inter­net statis­tics, and sells books and ebooks for building more effective websites. Also, because the wise use of fonts is so important to site design, the Browser News also reports new or updated fonts, especially free flexible fonts. First published in September 1998, this is up­dated each Fri­day evening (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 11.0.46 wrongly reports that it is Internet Explorer 11.0, and Firefox 58.0.2 wrongly reports that it is Firefox 58.0. This makes it impossible for browser sniffers to report the correct version vectors.

Note: some browsers, including Safari and some versions of Vivaldi, don’t always report the major version numbers cor­rect­ly in their user​Agent strings, making it more difficult for browser sniffers to determine their version vectors.

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