Finally, A Google Earth Browser Plugin For Mac OS X

The long-anticipated release of the Google Earth browser plugin for Mac OS X (Intel and PowerPC) has arrived, about half a year after the plugin for Windows was announced and about 5 weeks after the introduction of the GE iPhone application. Linux users will still have to wait a bit for a compatible version.

You can download by visiting any Google Earth Plugin app or visiting the GE API web site. Attention: the file is 47MB in size, because of the combined Intel and PowerPC compatibility. Go to EarthSwoop or 360Cities to see it in action.

It will be interesting to see if this release will result in more widespread support of the plugin, and I’m curious to see what developers will come up with for their applications.


Thanks to Jeffrey Martin from 360Cities for the tip.
