The answer to this questioon is most likely “Probably, most of the time.” if you are using a current browser or an Android / iOS / WebOS phone.
The problems start to happen when you get someone like me who has tons of browsers on their computer (sometimes just to try them out and sometimes becuase I want to have multiple Therap accounts open at once while I am testing or setting somethign up).
Examples of browsers I might use include:
- Internet Explorer
- Chrome (probably the browser I use most though it has been causing me grief recently and with the new Firefox for Android I am really considering goign back)
And those are only the ones I use on my computer, when it comes top phones, tablets, and other mobile devices, there are mobile versions of each one of these!
Just the week, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 9 and Mozilla has released Firefox 4. Theoretically they are all moving towards standards based browsing, but any time they make an update (which they will often do weekly) they may change the way that websites and applications like Therap interact with them.
Obviously, if we were to spend all of our time on 100% compatibility with the latest browsers (not to mention the verious beta and mobile versions) you would probably never see a new feature.
Instead, we concentrate on the mature versions and address major functionality issues as we did with SComm on the iPad version of Safari.
What this says is, please let us know when you see curious things going on with brand spanking new browsers, but don’t expect instant fixes on little annoyances.
It’s very similar with phones and mobile devices. Just walk into Best Buy or Staples to see how many there are, each with their own vagueries. We can’t possibly test every last device that is out there, but we would love to know which ones you are having success (or not) with.
I use my Android phone (a Droid 2), a Samsung Galaxy Tab, an iPod Touch and an iPad all with great success and I am sure that there is a device out there that is perfect for you (I am rather excited about the possibilities for the Motorola Xoom).
Let me know what you use.
