Google Earth plug-in finally released for Mac

Just a bit over six months since it was released for Windows, the Google Earth plug-in has been made available for the Mac.

Once you get the plug-in, there’s a lot of neat stuff you can do with it.  Some places to start:

There don’t seem to be any changes to the Windows version, and a Linux version is still in the works.  Even so, this gives a bit boost to the legitimacy of the plug-in!

Google Earth plug-in now works in Firefox 3!

I didn’t expect to see it on a Sunday, but Google has updated the Google Earth plug-in to work with Firefox 3.  The cool thing is that you don’t even need to update the plug-in — some server-side tricks are what make it work.

I haven’t seen an official announcement yet, but it was revealed in this Google Group thread.  My previously non-working version is now fully functional, so apparently it’s live.

Now you can go play with ShareIt, or Monster Milktruck or anything else that you want using Firefox 3.
