I do not use Google Chrome, therefore I have been postponing buying DMS until I am able to use Safari or Firefox.

Are there any plans for DMS to be able to be edited using Safari or Firefox?

Thank you.

There are many plugins that can change your browsers ident string allowing you to use ANY browser.

I think you can even change safari ident in its developer tools.

Chrome has a far better javascript engine.

Thank you for your helpful response. 

 

Perhaps in the future DMS will run natively on Safari and Firefox.

 

Best.

Dear Simon_P,

 

Thank you again for your helpful response.  

I wanted to add that on Safari you can activate the "Develop" menu under preferences.  After that, it is just a matter of choosing "User Agent" and choosing the browser identity one wishes Safari to be.

Yeah you can as you mentioned above in Safari. However, I am not sure this can be done in FF, IE or Opera without the use of plugins/extensions. However, not sure why you would really want to use any other browser Chrome > All! ;)

I too wish other browsers were enabled by default. Chrome used to be leaps and bounds ahead of other browsers for processing JS, and now I believe they're comparable. Dare I say even newer versions of IE can be surprisingly good.
