What are the browser requirements for playing SparkChess online?

SparkChess works on any modern browser. Supported browsers include:

  • Microsoft Edge Browser
  • Firefox
  • Google Chrome and Chrome for Android
  • Safari and iOS Safari
  • Opera, Vivaldi, etc.
  • Android Browser

We strive to keep SparkChess compatible to as many browsers as possible, but there’s always a tradeoff. As of 2020, SparkChess still works on Internet Explorer 10+, but it’s no longer officially supported.

If in doubt, we recommend you to use Google Chrome (or its open source brother Chromium) on any platform as it provides all the features SparkChess needs, speed, stability and security.

For Internet Explorer 9 and below we still have a Flash-based version but it’s no longer updated and supported.
