Sparkle requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later and runs smoothly on the latest 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra.
Websites generated with Sparkle have been tested in a variety of scenarios.
Specifically Sparkle websites work on all current versions of the major browsers of each platform:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge
• Google Chrome
and the mobile browsers:
Compatibility and visuals are degraded in older versions, but very minor for browsers shipped in the past 3 years.
Sparkle has specific provisions and workarounds to make sites work on Internet Explorer back to version 8 with a visual degradation for some features, specifically non-opaque elements in some cases and partially transparent gradients.
Updated for Sparkle 2.1
