For those interested, Fairy-Max is now being used as a remotely connected bot player on the Jocly platform. It offers regular orthodox Chess, Makruk, Capablanca, Cylinder Chess, Shatranj, and Courier. XiangQi is also available via the Max-Qi engine from the same author as Fairy-Max.

To play one of those variants, go to https://www.jocly.com/#/open-tables and click on an open table to start the game, or invite user HGMBot to play. Since the bot is connected to Jocly as a regular user, you'll need your own Jocly account (free) to play this AI.

Prefer Firefox, Chrome or Safari (with WebGL enabled) to get a 3D interface for playing. If 2D is good for you, any modern browser will work, including those from mobile devices.
