I don't think there is a preferred browser version for tableau server. Every product IE, Chrome and firefox are trying to optimise different aspects of the browsing experience. Unfortunately most of the enterprise level companies only go with IE which has been a standard. I have personally tested and felt that firefox is faster compared to IE and Chrome.
As a workaround to inhibit client side rendering, try views from your tableau server using server side rendering this can be achieved by adding " ?:render = false" at the end of your view.
