Question

Does Tableau Desktop use an underlying web browser to render web page objects on dashboards?

Environment

Tableau Desktop 10.0.0

Answer

Web page objects in Tableau Desktop do not utilize an underlying browser - Tableau Desktop uses QT WebKit to render web objects. More information on the version of QT that we use can be found in the C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau x.x\bin directory.
