I'm a fan of Google earth, and have used it around friends houses, but I've never really been that keen on downloading the desktop application and to have it run as a program.
But now, Google are set to release their web-browser version of Google Earth, that is accessible in the two main Browsers: Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox.
It comes as an Plugin, which are easily accessible and usable, making the world of 3D and map covering potential, easier than ever.
Rival Local.live, have obviously been put under pressure, with the up-coming release of such a giant competitor, but this step from google has been anticipated for quite sometime.
I will personally be using this Plugin when it comes out.
For more information you can visit the GoogleEarth Plug-in Page.
