Browser support[edit]

Froala Rich Text Editor is constantly tested in all the supported browsers via unit tests. However, there might be small differences from one browser to another according to the browser-specific behaviors. Testing is essential to fully support a browser. Only the last version of the WYSIWYG HTML editor is tested and updated to fix bugs and add features. Users of older versions that find a bug should upgrade to the latest released version to determine if the bug has already been fixed.

Froala editor supports all major web browsers.

  • Internet Explorer 9+
  • Safari 5.1+
  • Firefox (Current - 1) and Current versions
  • Chrome (Current - 1) and Current versions
  • Opera (Current - 1) and Current versions
  • iOS 6.0+
  • Android 4.0+

(Current - 1) and Current means that the editor supports the current stable version of the browser and the version that precedes it. Starting with Froala WYSIWYG Editor version 1.2.6 Froala Labs dropped the limited support for IE 8. Some of the rich text editor's features cannot be implemented in earlier versions of IE than 9. Fallback to textarea in IE 8 is expected for version 1.2.7.


Froala WYSIWYG HTML Editor uses a modular programming structure based on plugins and makes it easier to understand, extend, modify and maintain.


Froala WYSIWYG HTML Editor introduce a customising tool which can be used to create custom versions of the editor.
