Which browsers are recommended?

I've only tried Firefox on Windows so far, but found it can be a bit glitchy: it took 3 attempts (page refreshes) before I could draw a rectangle on a surface.

Is everyone using/testing with Chrome, or should I find a WebKit backed browser?

    I've had no problems with Firefox.  Do you have any add-ins installed?

    I use 64-bit chrome and think it's the most progressive browser out there.

    I've tried edge but it's not native on my computer so probably won't use it.

    @nick_poole - what version of Firefox and Windows are you using, and what's the make and model of your graphics card?

    Onshape runs best on either Chrome or Firefox, depending on your system specs.  Safari on Mac is also pretty good, as is Opera.  We highly recommend users avoid Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge because they don't fully support WebGL and a number of other libraries that are critical for Onshape.
