Home Assistant requires a web browser to show the frontend. Not all browsers include features which are needed to use the Home Assistant frontend. If you are running into trouble, check the list below.

We don’t test the web interface against all available browsers but this page tracks different browsers on various operating systems and should help you to pick a browser which works.

We would appreciate if you help to keep this page up-to-date and add feedback.
