Benchling supports and is actively tested against the latest version of Chrome. We recommend using Chrome for the best experience as it automatically updates with new features and security patches.

Currently, we best support Chrome <67. We also support Chromium based browsers such as Microsoft Edge.

For the best experience, use a supported browser.

Benchling is committed to providing tools that go beyond the traditional limits of web applications. Our engineering team makes extensive use of features available in modern, up-to-date browsers in order to provide the best possible experience.

Using an unsupported browser can result in erroneous error messages or a degradation of service.

Recent versions of modern browsers like Firefox and Safari are expected to work, but may occasionally have issues or usability quirks. Recently, issues have been reported using Benchling on Safari. Please report any such issues via the help icon in the bottom right of this page.
