Purchased a licence for v2 in August 2005 and v3 in December 2009...I can't see any improvements, updated viewing capabilities or new features that would justify me spending another $19,95. Nice knowing you EB, but sadly we must now part ways...

I try to contact the dev at support@earthbrowser.com and sales@earthbrowser.com but the mail just bounce back and cannot be delivered. don't know whether the dev go out of business or system break down.

Ending up, I cannot register earthbrowser. Help please. Want to contact the developer on this issue. And thank if there is any advice.

Now starting a couple of days ago, no more weather cloud or any information update. Just plain Earth with no information. Matt Geiger have no more interest in Earthbrowser, after 6 year of my subscription.

Agree May be time to remove Earthbrowser

Today, Earthbrowser update it's content once, and after that,MIT stop updating again. Seems like Matt Geiger has pulled the plug out of update server intentionally. Cone on Matt, if you decided to stop, tell us gracefully.

I write an email to Matt again, will see whether it will bounce back again

Earthbrowser IS alive and well once again. Must be the result of the newest Adobe Air version.
Anyway, once I learned of a new Adobe Air update(v2.0.2) I reinstalled Earthbrowser and it's working just fine now.

With Earthbrowser dead since at least November'09...it appears to be a problem with 'Adobe Air', I tend to think that Earthbrowser has now been abondoned by its developer.
Too bad, it was an outstanding, interesting and fun creation, and I miss it.

Yep, Earthbrowser is currently dead in the water. When I attempt to launch it, I get a message saying, "This application requires a version of Abobe AIR which cannot be found( I've already got AIR installed with my copy of Earthbrowser). Please download the latest version of the runtime from http://www.adobe.com/go/getair."
I downloaded it rom Adobe but couldn't get a useable .zip.
So the problem is without doubt at Adobe's end.

Earthbrowser currently does not work, at least it's not working for me.
It's been working just fine for the past several months.
I wonder if there's a problem with Adobe Air which Earthbrowser uses.
I understand that Adobe Air has been glitchy in the past.
I contacted Earthbrowser's'developer about this issue but so far no reply.

Earthbrowser has come a long way since I first checked out version 3 some time ago, certainly since version 2.
It's now smooth and stable, offers an extremely well rendered earth and has some terrific features i.e. major satellite orbits shown.
It's features are pretty easy to use. Earthbrowser is always interesting, I've never tired of using it.
The developer is quite accessible, being very responsive to input and queries; I've always gotten a prompt reply to questions.
He's another developer who's demonstrated that he really knows what he's doing. He's been around working on Earthbrowser for a goodly number of years and is very dependable and responsible, unlike many who offer their wares here at MacUpdate.

Very nice application. I own v2.10. This new v3 has better controls and has some additional options. However, there is a major difference which is not in-favor of this release. Version 3 uses 110%+ CPU when active and 60-90% while the window has the focus but is idling. Version 2 is much more responsive and efficient only revving up to 80-90% CPU during full animation and dropping down to nothing while idling. While the animation is not completely smooth in the older version it seems to be much more so than v3.

So as of now I can't justify upgrading. Maybe the developer can comment as to why version 3 seems a step backward in performance? Could it be Adobe Air?

v3.1.2 will not install due to corrupt Air file.

Forgive my ignorance, but so what if Earthbrowser uses over 100% CPU? My MacBook Pro's got a 2.5Ghz processor and I've noticed that EB will often peak at 150+ CPU usage without causing any issues on my Mac and my MBP is not running at very high temps at that point.
When I'm using EarthBrowser, I'm not doing anything else processor intensive at the same time. One is usually focused on EB and not on anything else.
Anyway, where's the problem? What would be a potential problem? Please enlighten me.
