    Major Browsers
    Do you know there are well over a hundred different types of browsers used on the web today? In order to ensure that we can provide our visitors with the best experience possible, we develop WAREwithal.com to work with the major browsers on the market. Those browsers are Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, and Safari. However, we cannot guarantee you will have the same experience in each browser. Granted, we do recommend that whichever browser you do use, you should keep it up-to-date. This ensures that your browser has the latest security features available.

    In order to give the user the best possible experience, javascript is required for this site and must be enabled to allow for functionality to behave correctly while using WAREwithal.com. Disabling javascript will hinder the user's ability to use the application.

More specifically, they are used for security purposes when logging into the application and when taking a Kolbe Index. However, no personally identifiable information is stored in the cookies. Cookies must be enabled in order to use WAREwithal.com.

    Color Printer
    Since color is a very important part of the Kolbe results, we recommend printing them in color rather than black and white.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader
    Acrobat Reader is used for displaying various reports, articles, and forms. There is no alternative for these features. This is a free plugin and an industry standard for sharing documents.

    Adobe Acrobat (PDF Writer)
    Adobe Acrobat and other third parties allow for you to "print to PDF" in order to make PDF files. Many of our users do so to share reports and results easily amongst teammates. Adobe Acrobat 10 has known printing issues. Acrobat 10.1.3 contains the fix for those issues.
