About Us

Webcompat.com allows you to report web compatibility issues though a simple webform. Volunteers view the reports, identify solutions, and share the reports and solutions with the website admins. For more details see our About page.

Public Reports

All reports are publicly accessible. Please do not include any confidential or personal information in the content of your report.

If you choose to upload a screenshot or other image, it will be publicly accessible. Please do not include any confidential or personal information in the screenshot.

The User Agent HTTP header that your browser sends will be recorded in the bug report, if you choose to report a bug, but is hidden by default.

Reporting Anonymously

If you choose the anonymous option, the only information that we’ll receive is the content of your report.
