The best Pinside experience?

For the best Pinside experience, we recommend one of the following (free) web browsers. Please note that we do not recommend any version of Microsoft Internet Explorer lower than version 9.


An amazing browser that is extremely privacy-friendly. You can't go wrong with FireFox!

The browser from Google that has taken the world by storm. Chrome renders Pinside beautifully well.

There were times when we loathed Microsoft's browser. But not anymore! Sporting the same engine as Chrome, Edge renders the Pinside great.

Safari works, like everything Apple, pretty darn well. It's not as cutting edge ads the other browsers listed - but it focuses on privacy and speed!


Other browser make work fine too! But we only test with the above browsers.

Hey there! Welcome to Pinside!
