Q. What browsers does wispy work with?

A. Wispy has been tested with Internet Explorer 6 to 9, although the more recent the version the faster it runs, I.E. 9 renders a cloud in under 10 seconds on my machine, I.E. 6 can take up to 10 minutes. Wispy has also been tested under Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox 3+ and Opera 11+. It should run on just about any browser with a Canvas tag implementation (and thanks to a flash fallback, many that dont). If it doesnt run on your browser please let me know, and I will see about fixing that.
