Google Earth in a Browser

Google Earth, meet the browser...

Unfortunately, for now at least, the browser plug-in is Windows only. While I've been promised that Mac OSX and Linux versions are coming soon, I'm really hoping that OSX support isn't limited to Firefox. For once, I'd like to see a Safari support out of the gate.

Update: Brady Forrest has a good overview over on the O'Reilly Radar, while Dann Catt is poking around the internals over on Geobloggers.


  1. I've been meaning to play with this for months, and of course, I haven't got around to it. It seems to me that combined with Sebastian's firefox plugin this could be a promising avenue for getting PLASTIC or SAMP support in Google Earth.

  2. That thought occured to me to when I first heard about the new Google Earth plug-in. The first thought I had when I heard about Sebastian's Firefox plug-in? That'd be, "Damn, why didn't I think of that?"...
