Device Agnostic: The only thing you need is a relatively up-to-date version of either Firefox, Chrome, Explorer or Safari, and an internet connection. If you are using CodeMonkey on a tablet: For best performance - use a relatively new tablet (from the last two years) connected to the internet and access our website through the Chrome/Safari app.
