Thanks for sharing wacole1213. I use Google Maps a lot and their Mapping API seems to be in continuous development bringing new features. But it invariably brakes some of my older solutions or older browsers, but I had never heard it breaking based on the video card hardware. I take it there is some video card acceleration maybe something like making use of OpenGL or DirectX in the video card.
I'm a big Mac user and because of that I use Safari a lot. The iOS version of Safari is not the same one as on the Mac OS X and I've painfully found that code that works on Mac OS X Safari and most PC browsers can sometimes not work on iOS. So you have to test all platforms you want to support. Bit of a pain. Now you've added in another variable for me to test.
So, if we have to test this new variability, is there a FileMaker command to test the video card of the computer you are on? Maybe some command via the BaseElement terminal command function. Not sure... just thinking it through like how to direct people with unsupported chipsets to the lite version.

I wonder the line is 4 in the function, since the output in command line have the value in 2nd line as
Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
then if the CRLF become 2 line breaks in FM, it is 3rd line.
