Updated 16 Feb, 2022

The Browser Condition gives you the ability to select the browser(s) on which your box will be exclusively displayed. You get to choose among the Top 6 Browsers on the market currently. Those are Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari.

Browser Display Condition


In the table below you can see which options are available to setup the Browser Condition.

Name Description
Match Set whether to match or not the selected browsers.

This option lets you choose at least one choice of browser brand. You just click on the field and select one or all six of the available choices below:

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Internet Explorer
  • Opera
  • Safari

Use Case

A very common use case for the Browser Condition is when you know that the content of your box appears differently from browser to browser and you'd like to create different versions of them for different browsers so you end up with a uniformed look.

Another useful use case would be for websites which sell Software as a Service that one of these happen to not be compatible with certain browsers. In that case you would want to exclude this particular box from this browser or include it only on all the others.

Useful Notes

Browsers are identified by what is called a User-Agent String which can be manipulated into anything by advanced users. The result for those users can be dependable to what they have chosen to change it into.
