Is any Bitcoin block explorer working fine with the new Bech32 address format?

Blockchain.info can´t display them correctly unless you enable "show scripts & coinbase".
Even then you can´t view them like a usual BTC address or even view the balance of it.

Blocktrail has even less support than Blockchain.info.

Is there any block explorer that already fully supports the new address format?

Thank you.

The only ones I know with full support (overview page, address shown in transactions, ...) for bech32 addresses are https://btc.com and https://blockchair.com

Thank you. Do you know by any chance whether the BTC.com web wallet supports sending
to Bech32 addresses? Or is only their block explorer fully SegWit compatible as of now?

I don't know as I don't use their wallet.

I've tried to do some research but I can't find an answer (and I'm too lazy to test myself).

You can ask in their thread if you want: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1572823.0

I have tried to search for a bech32 address and I was able to find it so the blockexplorer is doing good. As for the wallet, I don't suggest it whether It has SegWit or not. I have used it for long time and I can tell you that the fees calculations are just ridiculous, I wouldn't risk storing anything there.

Yes, I have read your posts in the official BTC.com wallet thread. Maybe they are trying
to push people to Bitcoin Cash by using inflated transaction fees? There is a conflict of interest
anyway, because as a miner they are one of the entities that collects the transaction fees.

I have another question regarding SegWit. Is it possible to send Bitcoin from an Electrum 3.03 non-Segwit wallet
to a bech32 address in another Electrum 3.03 wallet? Or can bech32 addresses only receive funds from
Segwit addresses?

Yes, it's possible if the wallet supports (Electrum does in this case) and the sender can use any kind of Bitcoin address.
