Browser System Requirements
Browser Insight operates through
Internet Explorer 4.0+ and Netscape Navigator 4.0+ by downloading DHTML
not require installation or plug-ins, but does have some basic
requirements and settings you need to know. Run Browser Insight on a PC or
Mac that is 166Mhz or faster. Actions happen faster when images are kept
in memory. More memory is an advantage for using images. For Macintosh
system users, increase the memory for the application, and turn on virtual
memory. You should have at least 800 x 600 screen resolution and 16-bit
color depth. You can use 8-bit color, but will lose a significant amount
of image quality in the David Rumsey Collection.
