 +======Browser support======
 +The Twine 1.4+ runtime engine (that is, the Javascript 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+ |✔|✔|Only if private browsing is off|✔|
 +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.
