-======Browser support====== 
-The Twine 1.4+ runtime engine (that is, the engine used to play built Twine games) has the following official browser support: 
-^ Browser ^ Basic Usage ^ Embedded Images ^ HTML5-based history ^ CSS Transitions ^ 
-|IE 7  |Will not run| | | | 
-|IE 8  |✔|< 32KB each| | | 
-|IE 9 |✔|✔| | | 
-|IE 10+ |✔|✔|✔|✔| 
-|Current versions of desktop Chrome, Firefox and Opera|✔|✔|✔|✔| 
-|Safari 5.1+|✔|✔|✔|✔| 
-|iOS Safari 6+ |✔|✔|✔|✔| 
-Other browsers are not officially supported. Their adherence to these features is unknown. 
-=====HTML5 history fallback===== 
-Since IE 8 and IE 9 do not support HTML5 History, they will fallback to the old hashstring-based history method used in Twine 1.3.5. Every time the player changes passages, a new hashstring containing an encoding of the current game state is added to the page's URL. This creates a new entry in the browser'​s history, and allows the back button to return to previous passages. However, it is bug-prone: whenever the back button is used, the entire page is reloaded and the game state is re-computed from the hash. This may cause certain custom macros (such as audio macros) to fail.
