Koha recommendations

Las recomendaciones completas del sistema pueden encontrarse en la wiki oficial de Koha acompañado junto con la documentación para desarrolladores:

When working in the Koha staff interface it is strongly recommended that you use an up-to-date version of either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. The Koha community doesn’t support Internet Explorer for the staff interface. If your organization only allows Microsoft products, use Edge instead of Internet Explorer.
