Google Earth Is Set To Debut On Firefox

Before this year, Google Earth eventually became available on a browser, providing you a way to practically explore our planet without needing to set up its own application. Right now, however, it will only function if you are using Google Chrome, something its programmers are working hard to change: their official Twitter accounts have only revealed that they are making very good progress on bringing the online program to Firefox.

Back when the Earth staff were working on the program for the internet they just had two strategies to attract native code into a browser. They picked a method referred to as “Native Customer,” which just Chrome supports but guaranteed to make another variant using WebAssembly, the open standard for conducting native code from the browser that is still in evolution. Now that WebAssembly has progressed enough for the group to use, they have finally managed to show off exactly what the Firefox interface of Earth would look like.

Thus, once Google is completed porting Earth over, you may be able to get all of its own satellite imagery on just about any browser you need.
