Now: Chrome Browser for the Cosmino Software Officially Released and Under Maintenance


Up to now, the Google Chrome browser was not officially released for the Cosmino software, although it was still possible to use it. The reason for this is that different browser types display HTML pages differently. So there was no guarantee so far that the functions of the Cosmino dialogs called via Chrome would work without restrictions.

Since June 2021, the Chrome browser may now be used officially. This means all existing functions have been extensively tested with Chrome by COSMINO and optimized for the Google browser. Before using Chrome, only an update to a current and thus Chrome-compatible Cosmino version is required.

However, it is important to note that modern browsers such as Google Chrome - and MS Edge Chromium for that matter - no longer support the following feature: Any documents that are linked to be called in the Cosmino WorkerPoint but are located on a different server than the Cosmino system can no longer be called due to security policies.

It will still work with the "old" Internet Explorer to open documents from foreign servers. Chrome, on the other hand, prevents this. This does not affect documents on the same server as the MES installation. Links to HTML pages can also still be accessed.

We have already developed a solution to the above problem, but it must be in place and the affected links updated when switching to Chrome.

Also, if customizations have been made to a system, additional testing and optional adjustments should be made before switching to Chrome.

Please take this into account when switching to a different browser and proceed as follows:
  • Schedule and perform Cosmino update
  • Install Chrome on test system
  • Test functions with Chrome
  • In case of problems, report to COSMINO customer service


If you have any questions or are interested in switching browsers, we look forward to hearing from you and will be available to assist you.
