NEW MAPS - additional info, Questions & Answers: Q: In which browsers it doesn't work? A: On Windows platform it doesn't work in Internet Explorer. On MacOS/iOS platform, Safari versions 9 and older are not supported as well. Q: In which browsers it DOES work? A: Technically speaking, in all browsers which supports ES6 javascript features and WebGL. We tested Chrome, Firefox, Opera (work without any issues), Edge (minor issue in flight graph - line is not visible; it's an Edge bug) and Safari (there is a problem with fullscreen mode on desktop - map and graph does not fit the fullscreen space and remain small; we are currently investigating the issue). Of course you should not have outdated version, which may not support modern web standards needed to run the map application correctly. Q: I don't see the map at all - what should I do? A: First, check which browser do you use. If your browser is Internet Explorer, you will not see flight detail map. Please use other modern browser instead. Then check if your browser version is up-to-date. Modern browsers usually update itself automatically in the background, but it may not be the case of your system/configuration. In case you use old hardware, you may have problem with WebGL support - it depends on graphic card and some very old ones don't support WebGL. To check if your browser supports WebGL, please visit this link https://get.webgl.org/. Q: I can't update my browser/OS/hardware and I am unable to see flight detail map. Do I have any chance? A: We plan to implement fallback version with static map for old and outdated browsers - but you will not be able display full featured flight map anymore. We are very sorry...

NEW MAPS in a flight detail! Maybe the new flight detail seems to be still familiar to you, but the map engine is completely new and rewritten from scratch. We hope you enjoy the flight browsing even more then before, especially on mobile devices. In case you'll find any problem or bug, please report it to support@xcontest.org, thanks! Apology to small number of outdated browsers users - new maps won't work there. We are also aware of minor issues in Edge and Safari, particularly on fullscreen mode. Well, bye bye Google Maps, farewell...
