Browser Support

Posted: Jan 15, 2022

Updated: Jan 15, 2022

TLDR: Use any browser on mac or windows, use Safari on iPhones, use Google Chrome on Android.

In release v3.1, the decision was made to disable the ability to download files on mobile browsers due to inconsistent support.

"All browsers now open the requested file in a new tab. To visually reflect this change, using the mobile version of floatingfile will show different buttons indicating the functionality (download or open)."
