Supported browsers

Qlik Sense is designed to work on the platform and web browser combinations described in this section, using default browser settings.

Each Qlik Sense release is tested for compatibility with the latest publicly available browser versions. Due to the frequency of browser version updates, Qlik does not include specific browser version numbers in the system requirements.

Each Qlik Sense release is compatible with and supported on the latest iOS versions that are publicly available at the time of the Qlik Sense release. Due to the frequency of iOS version updates, Qlik does not include specific iOS version numbers in the system requirements.

Note: Minimum screen resolution for desktops and laptops is 1024x768; tablets is 1024x768; small screens is 320x568.

Improving performance in Internet Explorer

Note: As of the May 2021 version, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 will not be supported.

Qlik Sense connects to your browser using WebSockets. Each new tab that you open uses additional WebSocket connections. By default, Internet Explorer 11 limits the number of Websocket connections to 6 per Internet Explorer session. This can limit your ability to open new tabs or configuration windows.

Your Windows administrator can change this setting using the Local Group Policy Editor. The setting is available under Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Security Features > AJAX > Set the maximum number of WebSocket connections per server. Only your system administrator should change this configuration.

You can also open apps in new Internet Explorer sessions, instead of new tabs. If an app will not open in a new tab, copy the url from the address bar in the Internet Explorer tab. Select File > New Session from the Internet Explorer top menu. Paste the url in the address bar, and then press Enter. The app opens in the Internet Explorer new session window.
