SOFTWAREAlthough we recommend Chess Base 16 as the preferred software solution for using the Quality Base 2021 in a Windows environment, an older version of this same program will serve equally well. Mac users can browse QualityBase 2021 thanks to the additional PGN database (for Hiarcs, Shredder and any other program). PGN will also be handy when using your favourite program (any PGN viewer) on Android or iOS device.
