The Lounge is best viewed with Internet Explorer 5.5+ or Netscape 6.2+. Any changes to the Lounge are tested with these browsers. Other browsers, eg. Internet Explorer 5.01+ or Netscape 4.76+ may work but are not explicitly supported.

The minimum screen resolution required is 800x600x16bit (High Colour). Use of Large (L) or Extra-Large (XL) skins may require higher resolutions to reduce horizontal scrolling.

The Lounge also requires specific Browser Settings and is enhanced with several True Type Fonts.

Note: If you do not want to allow most web sites to save cookies on your computer, you can add the lounge to your list of Trusted Sites, and apply the above Internet Explorer settings for your Trusted Sites. (You do this from the Security options tab by clicking on the Trusted Sites icon, then the Sites... button, typing www.wopr.com in the box and clicking the Add button. The checkbox next to "Require server verification..." should be cleared.) That way, you do not need to change your general Internet browsing preferences when you visit the Lounge.
