Browser compatibility

Just a quick and hopefully straightforward question.... are there any issues
with web sites based on .Net not working correctly (or at all) for clients
using non IE browsers (Mozilla and Firefox being the two major concerns
obviously)?

Thanks

Hi Rob,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From
your description, I understand that you need to know if there is any
browser compatibility issues for ASP.NET. If there is any misunderstanding,
please feel free to let me know.

Yes, there is. The compatibility issues are mainly in script support and
web controls. Here are some documents about cross-browser compatibility.

Your understanding would be correct.

So the situation is that if I'm building an asp.net site which I want to
ensure works under Mozilla, then there would be no reason why it wouldn't
work, just that the code would need to be tested and potentially tweaked
slightly to cope?

Hi Rob,

The general asp.net controls can be rendered properly to HTML. However,
some IE web controls might not be displayed on other browsers. It would be
good practice to test the app on all browsers.
