Google Earth for Mac

Easy to download and install — Download from web site, open the dmg, and drop the app in the Application folder.

Runs pretty fast, even on my 800MHz G4 Powerbook

Flew from my home to Disneyland. Limited by network speed since the map was blurred as it flew a ballistic course to Disneyland. Once it arrived, it took a few seconds to download the high resolution image.

Tilt (oblique) works well.

Zoom in and you can see the shadows people cast on the Main St. The Castle is flattened.

The bottleneck is in the network, not the processor speed

All-in-all, not bad.
