ICSuite automatically detects the browser and deactivates the inoperate functionalities (graceful fallback). Our priority is to garantee you a bug free product for your web applications.

Q: What does graceful fallback mean exactly?

All other browsers not contained in the list above are covered by our graceful fallback system.
