Best Browser for Duolingo

I have technical problems often. The most frustrating is not being able to open a discussion when I get an answer wrong but don't understand why. I have a Mac and use Safari. Should I be using a different browser? Which one? Thanks.

Hi,

May I ask which Safari version do you use?
On what IOS version?

Here are two interesting threads with some more background informations:

If you can, try to upgrade to Safari 12 or 13 (if your MacOS allows this).

Other users have more success with Google Chrome V77-78 (latest is V79) or Mozilla Firefox Quantum (V71-72 are the newer ones; V69-70 are just 2-3 versions behind; there also is V68esr).

I'm using 12.1.2. I'll just switch to Chrome, thanks for your help.

I was just searching whether this has already been reported because I have similar issues & I'm also using Safari. The website has always been a little sluggish but it seems intensified since a couple of days ago. In addition Safari keeps warning me that "this web page is using significant memory". I'll use Chrome tomorrow and see whether it makes a difference.
