Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] Complaint web browsers

Lets distinguish between Supported browsers for the kerberos case and
the Supported browser for the Basic auth enabled case:

For Kerberos, it is as I said previously:  it will work on the others,
but you have to know how to configure.  You are not going to get IE
Kerberos support without a significant headache, but even that is
theoretically possible.  Kerberos is going to be an issue from Windows
no matter what.

For Basic Auth, things are much easier, but that is the setup is just
not that secure.  So that would be fine for a proof of concept, we just
don't recommend it in the wild.

As far as the Javascript web app goes, we try to stick to features that
work in all browsers.  For example, you'll notice that we don't do any
file uploads, as that is something that, in a AJAX application, is done
with browser specific code.  I can't promise that we will avoid browser
specific solutions in the future, but if we do, it will be that you can
do everything with either browser, but the user experience will be
smoother on Firefox.

If something is broken on a browser other than Firefox, please file a
ticket, and be prepared to test it for us.
