We believe that Vertabelo’s intuitive design lets you get started designing databases right away without having to pore over pages of documentation. This page covers only fundamental topics.

If you have any questions or ideas not covered here, please visit our Support website.

Supported web browsers

At this moment we support Google Chrome and Safari.

We decided to only support Google Chrome and Safari since the support for HTML5 in other browsers is not efficient enough to allow smooth work with Vertabelo.
