Mac WebViewer Requests Safari Upgrade

Recommended Posts


I’m working on an intergation with WhatsApp. Further down the line it will use the WhatsApp API but as a short term solution I had hoped to just open the WhatsApp web client in a WebViewer.

When I open it, however, it says that it needs Safari 9+.

I’m running Mojave with Safari 12.1.1

Any help as to why it’s asking for 9+ when it has 12?

I also get the same thing when trying to access Google Drive through a WebViewer.

The following code gives the following result:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
          <meta charset="UTF-8">
          <div id="example"></div>
          <script type="text/javascript">
             txt = "<p>Browser CodeName: " + navigator.appCodeName + "</p>";
             txt+= "<p>Browser Name: " + navigator.appName + "</p>";
             txt+= "<p>Browser Version: " + navigator.appVersion + "</p>";
             txt+= "<p>Cookies Enabled: " + navigator.cookieEnabled + "</p>";
             txt+= "<p>Platform: " + navigator.platform + "</p>";
             txt+= "<p>User-agent header: " + navigator.userAgent + "</p>";


Browser CodeName: Mozilla

Browser Name: Netscape

Browser Version: 5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_14_5) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/601.6.17

Platform: MacIntel

User-agent header: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_14_5) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/601.6.17


Many thanks,
