    I want to have access to microsoft bing maps from my mac. I want it especially for 3d feature.
    Is there any way to do it?
    I tried with several browsers but it displayed a message that they are not supported. Also I did not find the 'setup' application that pc-windows has.

    So, can I see bing maps/3d on mac?

    3D doesn't work

    Typically, you experience this issue when your browser isn't configured correctly to use Microsoft ActiveX controls.

    Add Bing Maps to your Trusted sites zone, and enable ActiveX for that zone:

    In Windows Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    On the Security tab, click Trusted sites, and then click Sites.
    In the Add this website to the zone box, type http://bing.com/maps.
    Make sure that the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box isn't selected, and then click OK.
    Click Trusted sites, and then click Custom Level.
    Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins, set the following options to Enable or Prompt:

    Download signed ActiveX controls
    Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins
    Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting
    Click OK, click Yes, and then click OK again.
    Note
    To enable ActiveX controls in a browser other than Internet Explorer, see the Help documentation for your browser.
