eBay is designed to work with most web browsers for PCs and Macs. We recommend you always use the current version of browsers to make sure our web pages display quickly, and that you have the latest security updates. If you use older browsers, you might notice that some functions and features you use on eBay will stop working as we make upgrades to the eBay site.
