Browser support for BIRT Viewer?

Good question. I was talking to someone who said something like, "the BIRT Viewer doesn't suppport Firefox 10 and the BIRT community has no immediately plans to add that support". I was surprised by that since I was also under the impression that "it works in all the major browsers". That's what prompted my post.
Anyway... if you say there are no known limitations around Firefox 10, then I'll drill down and try to get specifics.

Thanks mwilliams for confirming there's no known issues with FF10. I do have FF10 installed. If I find any unexpected behavior, I'll let the you (and the forum) know.

I just heard back from a colleague on this topic. Her response was: You can usually find the browser support for the BIRT Version in their project plans. http://www.eclipse.o..._plan_3_7_1.xml
This is exactly what I was looking for. In the 3.7.1 release, for example, it states:
BIRT Browsers and Viewers Reference Platforms Mozilla Firefox 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 Safari 4, 5 Google Chrome 13 Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0, 8.0, 9.0 Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0, 8.0, 9.0 Microsoft Office 2007, 2010

No worries... I'll definitely let you know if I see/hear anything specific.

Can any one give the list of browsers to support "BIRT"..IE, FireFox, Safari, Chrome....
In post #6 of this thread, you'll see the complete list, as of the BIRT 3.7.1 project plan. The 3.7.2 and 4.2.0 plans don't show this information.
