Google Earth Plug-in and its JavaScript API let you embed Google Earth, a true 3D digital globe, into your Web pages. Using the API you can draw markers and lines, drape images over the terrain, add 3D models, or load KML files, allowing you to build sophisticated 3D map applications. If you have an existing Maps API site, you can 3D-enable your page with as little as one line of code.

How do I start?
  • Check out some Google Earth Plug-in examples and visit the demo gallery.
  • Sign up for a Google Maps API key.
  • Read the Google Earth API

MacUpdate Desktop never ever works to install this plugin. Don't bother with that option. It will take a very long time to download and extract only to present a neverending candy cane progress bar - that will never complete.

Version 6 is out. Performance much improved! Startuptime now only 5 sec (before around 15 sec). CPU usage much reduced. Nice work!

If you already have the nasty Google Software updater on your computer that this installs here's how to remove it for good.

Delete the contents of this folder.

~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate

Then lock the folder. It can't reinstall itself after that.

Why would I not want the updater? Does it do more than just keep things updated? I don't see anything harmful there.

I just followed you suggestion, but then I started wondering why I wouldn't want my software kept up to date automatically.

Plugin still does not work in Safari (64 bit mode). The error message when using 64 bit still has not been changed to something useful. To use the plugin with the latest Safari in Snow Leopard you quit Safari, go to the app itself and Get Info then select the checkbox "Open in 32-bit mode". Of course you are losing the benefit of Safari in 64-bit mode.

This ad on is pretty much a memory hog on my MBP, 2.66ghz with 6 gigs of RAM.
Yup my fans are spinning up and activity monitor shows this is maxing things out.
Even VMFusion with Win 7 doesn't do that.

Also, and this is a big one, this also wants you to install Google Updater the
hidden update, who knows what it is sending out piece of garbage.

Sorry google not using any of your software till that, Google Updater is
removed (and yes I did remove that against the EULA)

Installer hangs during "Running package scripts." Had to force quit Installer.

So is this actually able to run under 64 Bit Safari now? Having to run mine in 32 Bit mode to be able to use it.

At least they provide a rev number, but without associated notes (which MacUpdate invariably posts, when/if they're available, good stuff!) I'm not inclined to install it. Going to the MacUpdate-listed developer website, I see no sign of release notes; matter of fact, this appears to be a developer-oriented site, everything focussed on the API. Not really suitable for general users.

C'mon Google, tell us more about what's happening with this plugin!

Hmmm. Seems broken. Anyone else getting:

“Plug-in Installer” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.
