What is the recommended web brower to create and edit a Powerapps app?

Hello,

 

I tried both Chrome and Internet Explorer to create and edit my app. Internet Explorer is very slow. Google Chrome is better but it gets sluggish sometimes.

 

I wonder if there are better web browers or ways to have a better experience with the app design.

 

Thank you.

I mainly use Chrome and Firefox. Both work well.

 

IE is like spinach, I can think of very few reasons to use it.

Hi @Anonymous and @DavesTechTips.

Microsoft has system requirements for Building and Editing PowerApps that can be found here. I found these by Duck Duck Go'ing the keywords "powerapps system requirements".

They state:

Browser Operating system

Google Chrome (latest version)
(recommended)
Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, and 10
macOS
Microsoft Edge (latest version)
(recommended)
Windows 10
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (with Compatibility View off)Windows 7 SP1, 8.1, and 10

I personally build PowerApps on Windows 10 devices using Chrome and on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 devices using Firefox. Each one will have a bug or two now and then but overall are very fast and productive.

Good luck!

I use a balance of Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

When developing for customers I use one browser, while been logged into my own account / environment on another browser, works well. Performance much the same on any.
