Supported Browsers and Features

Next.js supports IE11 and all modern browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, et al) with no required configuration.


We inject widely used polyfills, including:

If any of your dependencies includes these polyfills, they’ll be eliminated automatically from the production build to avoid duplication.

In addition, to reduce bundle size, Next.js will only load these polyfills for browsers that require them. The majority of the web traffic globally will not download these polyfills.

Custom Polyfills

If your own code or any external npm dependencies require features not supported by your target browsers (such as IE 11), you need to add polyfills yourself.

In this case, you should add a top-level import for the specific polyfill you need in your Custom <App> or the individual component.

JavaScript Language Features

Next.js allows you to use the latest JavaScript features out of the box. In addition to ES6 features, Next.js also supports:

Server-Side Polyfills

In addition to fetch() on the client-side, Next.js polyfills fetch() in the Node.js environment. You can use fetch() in your server code (such as getStaticProps/getServerSideProps) without using polyfills such as isomorphic-unfetch or node-fetch.
