  • Browsers tested and used with Dragon Pals

    I use multiple browsers, a lot more than some people have heard about so I am going to share my testing experiences for the players so they can see if there are any browsers that they may like to try out.... other techs / browser testers and players are welcome to post their own browsers and experiences

    I will also post links to the different browsers and some information on each one.....

    Chrome https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

    Tested 6 versions of chrome, runs ok, is known for issues with lag, disconnection, glitches and crashing. its different for each player ( means that updates, addons and extensions can be part of the problem or the fix )

    Comodo Dragon http://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-...rs/browser.php

    tested 4 versions, has secure DNS server ( very good for players with disconnection DNS issues ) was able to import settings from almost every browser, can be propriety at times.

    Ice dragon http://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-...on-browser.php
    Tested 4 versions, Firefox style browser, has stable dns services to block a lot of malware / phishing sites, stable and easy to use browser

    Opera http://www.opera.com/

    Tested 5 versions, stable browser, I did run into some issues with flash player and Intel graphics, had to search for a patch to correct the issues

    Maxathon http://www.maxthon.com/

    tested 5 versions, its a cloud browser, its not recommended for players with slow or bad connections, for players with good connections, its a very low lag browser that takes a bit to get used to... needs a dual core or higher system and stable 5 MBps connection to run best

    Pale moon http://www.palemoon.org/
    tested 6 versions, can run on 32/64 bit systems, I found it to be a stable system but it can be prone to crashing ( shockwave ) on some systems and while it can run on older computers, its better for newer computers

    Aurora / nightly and firefox
    Aurora and Nightly are pre release versions of Firefox they will update regularly, even daily in most cases..... Firefox is the final release version, I have tested multiple versions of the browsers, they are stable browsers and function well with most browsing and game play with minimum issues

    IE 8/9/10/11
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/i...er/download-ie
    tested multiple versions, I perfer IE 10 better, loved IE 8..... IE 11 is prone to issues and problems that are more to do with the net and software, not really the best gaming browser that players can use

    Safari https://www.apple.com/safari/
    Tested 5 versions, stable browser, not as user friendly as I would like but minimun issues for the most part

    Torbrowser https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
    Tested 3 versions... this is a standalone desktop browser that uses the mozilla firefox browser engine...... it runs from your desktop, it does not install in your system, brilliant as a proxy browser, slow to load and not as stable or fast as a normal browser, will run on windows, mac and linux systems, does take a lil tech know how to set up and run


    Cyberfox https://8pecxstudios.com/cyberfox-web-browser
    Multiple versions of portable, 32bit and 64 bit intel or amd processor builds.... uses the firefox code so is compatible with most addons and extensions for firefox, basic testing, browser ( 64 bit amd ) is fast and very stable, runs the game well

    Waterfox http://www.waterfoxproject.org/
    64 bit firefox browser, very guick and stable

    Do any of these browsers NOT experience the issue with the Battle Inferno map that everyone has been having problems with?

      that issue is a flash player issue, the devs are working on fixing that and other issues caused by the flash player update......

      the missing images files in inventory is one that disappeared when I changed from aurora to waterfox so I am not sure if it will resolve the issue with the dungeons, I have not had a chance to test them

        Did you try Opera with newer flash version of it?
        Many people says they used it and they dont seem to have an issue by having a glitch (spoken to people in S134)

          nope...... I did spend the weekend testing 17 different versions of flash ( from V13 to 10.3 ) to see if any of them would work on comodo, icedragon, FF, cyberfox, waterfox, aurora and IE 11....but if players think it works, then they can suggest it to other players as a working fix...

          there are multiple versions of flash player.... the IE version, non IE browser version and the plugins such as pepperflash etc, so when there is a flash related issue, its not as simple as finding a browser and using it with flash.... there is also the type of system flash on a players system and the browser flash plugins that have to be considered and thats why what works for one player, may not work for others..... some players have reported that using a proxy resolved the issues so the issues are not all flash related....some of them may be connection related but appearing the same way as the flash player issues

            It sounds like the worst one to use pretty much is IE, yet that is the only one that I can get to run even half decent. I have only tried chrome, firefox, and IE though. I definitely need to try the others! my IE likes to crash every once in a while (few times a week) and I have major lag! but with Firefox and Chrome, my screen is so laggy that the screen itself cuts up/divides.

              I tought its just a case of bad connection for my black screen on MPs ... apparently not. For me chrome has been very unreliable BUT using comodo dragon making me lose out on the extra value gift pack (the loading became unfinish loop for hours end until i reload it).

              Chrome took like an hour to load yesterday and yet crash when I take MP or DT anything that include fight scene (thats why I use comodo dragon) been having that problem for a month so basicly i lose a month worth of extra value pack but atleast i still can play though the loading on each fight took 1-2 mins.

              Yesterday was the worst! DCM make me prone to DC with heavy lags between battle! starting to think to throw my modem into the stove and melt it.grrrrrr.

              well I hope today maintanance will fix it.for sure.(crashing.3.to.7.times.yesterday.with.the.flash.turning.into.white.screen.....)

                    comodo uses a DNS server...... DNS servers are for domain names.... proxy servers are for access to websites.......

                    in comodo dragon, click on the dragon symbol, then scroll down to settings.... then scroll down to advanced setting..... in the privacy section, untick everything including the DNS server..... close the browser and restart it, then ONLY click the DNS server and see if that makes a difference....

                            try refreshing a couple of times..... then try flushing the DNS cache if you can https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html
