What is the best browser to use for Galaxy? 

I have a classroom of students, and Galaxy always has issues on Internet Explorer (does not render the eyeball to view data). Sometimes it has issues on Firefox too (after click the eyeball to view data, the data is not displayed at all).

It would be nice to know a browser (and version if needed) that is very well tested for galaxy, so I could have all students on that browser and version, and stop spending time fixing individual issues for students to use galaxy! 

Thank you,

Short answer: I would recommend latest Chrome and Firefox.

There are not many Galaxy developers that use IE so some glitches may be present. However if some icon is not visible at all that is an unexpected bug and we will fix it. I will look into the IE bug later today.

I was not able to reproduce the bug you reported for Firefox, can you give me some more details please? On what system and version of FF, and what were you doing would be a good start.
