Minimum system requirements for Daily Kos

Daily Kos updates its website features to keep pace with user expectations, accessibility guidelines, security concerns, and market pressures. We make every effort to enable users to view and participate in our website across many different devices and platforms, in accordance with the parameters above.

The following list characterizes the range of devices, operating systems, and browsers we currently support. Please note that we do not test on Linux machines.


Win 10: Edge; Firefox; Chrome (latest versions). IE11 is no longer being updated by Microsoft, and we no longer test our updates on that browser. 

Mac: OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) and later, for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.

We don't actively test Opera, but it usually works if these other browsers do.

Mobile devices

As a rough guide, please assume that we are looking back no more than three versions for iOS and Android. Thus, the latest version of iOS we support is 10.3.4. For Androids, it's Android 7/Galaxy 8.

Alternatives for mobile device users

You can install an RSS reader if you don't already have one and view Daily Kos content through it. If you need a reader, there are some free or inexpensive ones available via the App Store/Google Play. When you search for RSS readers, you'll see a large array of them. The information displayed about each will include ratings, features, and operating system compatibility. Once you choose one and install it, then you can fetch Daily Kos through it. There is an RSS link at the bottom of the main footer and at the bottom of every individual group or user blog view.
