Supported browsers for Power BI
Power BI is designed to work with any of the supported modern browsers mentioned below. However, performance differs depending on your choice of a browser. If you're using Internet Explorer in particular, which is no longer supported by Power BI, you might encounter worse performance. We strongly recommend a supported modern browser, like Microsoft Edge. If you still encounter unacceptable performance, test other supported modern browsers to see if they provide better results for your Power BI solution.
Power BI supports these browsers on all platforms where they're available:
- Microsoft Edge.
- Chrome desktop latest version.
- Safari Mac latest version.
- Firefox desktop latest version. Firefox might change the fonts used in Power BI.
Power BI doesn't run in any browsers in iOS10 or previous versions.
Power BI uses the Segoe UI font for text as its default, and the Din font for numbers, and other fonts when creating reports, dashboards, and other items. These fonts might not be available on non-Windows computers such as Macs. As a result the font, alignment of items, and visuals for the same report look different when viewed on a Windows computer versus a Mac.
The Calibri and Cambria fonts are only installed on Macs that have Microsoft Office installed. They aren't included in the default set of fonts on Macs.
If you're creating reports viewed on Mac computers, select fonts that display properly on Macs.
The following links provide information about which fonts are available on Macs. The links aren't maintained by Microsoft, and are provided only for reference and further reading.
