Question: Does PHP Work With My Browser?
Answer: Whether you are designing your website, or choosing the right internet browser for your computer you might be asking yourself... Is PHP compatible with my browser? While compatibility is a concern for some types of programming it isn't for PHP.

PHP is a server side language, which means that all of the PHP is executed on the server, so the browser on your computer never even sees it. What your browser gets is the result of the PHP, but not the PHP itself. This means your browser doesn't need any special settings to see PHP pages, enable PHP code, or anything else.

If you are having trouble with a PHP page, it is probably because there is something wrong with the code, or the HTML encasing it. But one thing is for sure, it is not a browser compatibility issue!
