What browser versions best work for the viewer
We recommended using Firefox 3.6 or Internet Explorer 8.
What about the just released Firefox 4.0 and Internet Explorer 9?
The Flyvie viewer is not yet released on these browser versions. Both IE 9 and FF 4.0 are relatively new and not yet stable. Firefox 4 seems to suffer from serious performance issues. And we have noticed problems upgrading to IE 9 and inability to load commonly used web pages after the upgrade. We recommend that users wait until these new versions of the two browsers are stable and patches to fix the issues are released. We will update the users via our news section, when the Flyvie viewer can be run on Firefox 4.0 or IE 9.
