Browser recommendation

As a web-based platform, DRE supports various browsers. We recommend using one of the three browsers listed above: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge.

Enable cookies

To provide its services, the DRE platform saves and uses cookies on your browser. In the Cookie Policies below, you can find out what kind of cookies DRE saves. If your browser, or any other extension/add-in, disallows cookies, DRE cannot function properly and will give errors. Below, you can find out how to enable cookies in different browsers.

Reduced functionality in some Browsers

We are aware of functionalities not working correctly in some browsers, including:

  • Google Chrome Incognito mode

  • Safari

  • Firefox Focus

For now, we do not prioritize adjusting the DRE platform to work correctly in these browsers. Other features, outlined in the Roadmap, are simply higher on our to-do list. For now, users must adjust by choosing other browsers and/or modes.
