NEW Map Milwaukee Applications
Browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox CAN now be used as web browsers when accessing the new, HTML5 Viewer Map Milwaukee Applications.
What does this mean?
Wherever there is a link for our Map Milwaukee applications, select and use the links under the HTML5 Viewer option. ANY desktop or mobile device as well as just about any web browser will work. So far, Safari (Apple devices) is the only browser that doesn't accept HTML5, but you can download and utilize any other browser . If you have bookmarks for the old applications, replace them with the new ones!
If you use the old, Silverlight viewer applications, you will still need to use Internet Explorer and the Silverlight plug-in to use the Map Milwaukee Applications. However, these applications will be removed soon.
What are we doing?
Right now we are offering both viewer options to give users time to get used to the new applications. However, since the new viewer can be used anywhere by any device and almost any browser our intention is to transition and remove the Silverlight viewer options in the near future.
We will keep you informed as we make changes. Information will be shared here and in the Map Milwaukee Portal.
The bottom line:
We have NEW VIEWERS that work with just about anything as long as you have the internet! The older, Silverlight applications still only work in Internet Explorer via desktop.
