Supported browsers

In this guide, you’ll learn about which browsers work well with Squarespace and the minimum requirements for editing your site.

Supported browsers

You can use the following browsers on computers and mobile devices to edit and view your Squarespace site.

Keep in mind:

  • On touchscreen devices, editing may work the same way as on mobile browsers, depending on the device type and browser size.
  • While it's not possible to sign up or edit sites using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can still view sites.
  • For Squarespace Scheduling, you can use our supported browsers, except for Microsoft Edge Legacy, to view and manage your features and settings. Your clients can schedule appointments using our supported browsers, in addition to Internet Explorer.

Using mobile browsers

When using Squarespace in mobile browsers, keep in mind:

  • You can edit many parts of your site on Chrome in Android and Safari in iOS and iPadOS.
  • Squarespace sites are optimized for viewing in Chrome and Safari's mobile browsers.
  • Use the Squarespace app for areas that don’t yet support mobile editing.
  • For Squarespace Scheduling, admins and clients can use any mobile browser to manage or schedule appointments. However, we recommend using our Scheduling mobile admin app or client mobile app.

More information

Here are a few other things to note when using a supported browser:

Check and update your browser version

We recommend using the latest browser version available to your operating system. See your browser’s documentation to learn more about checking and updating your version:

Your version of Safari and Microsoft Edge depends on your device's operating system.

Display varies by browser

Minor differences in how your site appears from one browser to another are normal. These differences are often caused by:

  • Browsers using slightly different technology to turn underlying computer code into pages displayed on your screen.
  • Whether you're logged in or out of your Squarespace account. For example, the clarity of your fonts and appearance of your site's colors may vary. The edges of your images may also look jagged or pixelated. This is caused by how different browsers load and display your site's content.

Important browser settings

To log into and edit your site, check if these browser settings are enabled or disabled in your browser:

  • Cookies - Cookies must be enabled in your browser, per our Cookie Policy. Blocking cookies will interfere with editing your site.
  • JavaScript - JavaScript must be enabled to edit your site. Avoid programs that block JavaScript, like anti-virus software.
  • Browser add-ons or extensions - Browser add-ons might interfere with site editing. While disabling them isn't always required, we may ask you to disable them when helping you troubleshoot.

Browser window sizes

Your computer's screen size determines the maximum browser window resolution. For the best experience editing your site, use a browser window at least 1280 pixels wide and 768 pixels tall.
