Widget: Web Browser
#1
What browser is used by default?  Can this be changed?  I put in a test URL and I get a ton of javascript errors when loading and finally an error about the browser being too old for the site.

You can't control it. That's an OS thing so it uses the Windows browser engine. You can control the version it emulates using a registry settings. If you search for Windows embedded browser version and registry you should find it. You can bump it up to the Edge level of compatibility.

Thanks for the tip.  Here's the information for others as well.  This should be made into a FAQ

Good idea.  I'd also like to mention that even with the fixes the IE 11 (Edge) browser still doesn't load some basic pages correctly in IV and throws JS errors.  Even against the CharmedQuark.com site....
