Google Earth browsers Chrome:
Google is now sharing the planet with other browsers as its aerial mapping service is presently available on browsers other than its own Chrome. Google Earth can currently be accessed through Firefox, Opera and Edge browsers, as per a blog post from the Google Earth team hours ago.
The official launch is coming after a 6-month public beta. Rumors have said plans are underway for Apple’s Safari browser to be supported as well, but there are not confirmations thus far.
Google Earth software engineer, Jessi Beck, and tech lead manager, Jordon Mears, revealed that Google Earth for the web was built using Native Client, which only functioned with Chrome. WebAssembly, an open standard across several browsers to run software, was then appreciated for aiding Google Earth to work on other browsers.
