Major Google Earth Update (Maps to follow)

Read all about it on the Official Google Blog: Happy Birthday, Google Earth:

We got so excited around here about the first anniversary of Google Earth that we decided to celebrate a bit early. Beginning today, you can download a brand new version, Google Earth 4. Running on OS X? Feel the love. Prefer Linux? Ditto. Yes, we’re releasing simultaneously for PC, Mac (universal binary for full performance on both Intel and PowerPC based Macs) and for the first time ever, native support for popular Linux distributions. And we should say “salut,” “ciao,” “hallo,” and “hola” to our French, Italian, German and Spanish users, because Google Earth is now fully localized for those languages in addition to English. This includes a UI localized to French, Italian, German, and Spanish, as well as local search, driving directions, geo-coding, and unique local information layers for those countries.

And… better resolution, KML for Maps, geo-coding, Maps for Enterprise …

Google Earth for Mac, developers wanted…

Or so it seems. Google wants a Senior Macintosh Developer – Mountain View and/or a Macintosh Developer – Mountain View. I suggest any Mac-developer have a go and bring us… Google Earth for Mac. 🙂

You may be very familiar with some of our desktop products including Google Earth, Google Desktop, Picasa, and Google Talk., the description says. Well, GTalk I can connect to with iChat for now. Picasa? iPhoto comes with the system. Google Desktop? There is a thing called Spotlight & Dashboard that come with Tiger already. So that leaves one much desired piece of software left… If I may trust my stats, it is the most requested item today. Though you may want to inquire with the Zeitgeist people upon application. 😉 (Found on Is Google Gearing Up for a Mac Software Assault?)

Tabbed browsing in IE is here

Well, you’ll have to download and install the MSN Search Toolbar first. But this is the official Microsoft add-on to IE that does make the browsing experience tabbed right now. No longer do you have to wait for IE7. Plus you get the added bonus of desktopsearch, auto form fill and a popupblocker. And it’s not even XP Servicepack 2 only.

Ok, there are other 3rd party tools available to make IE tabbed and the first reviews aren’t that nice. Why don’t you install it now and tell me what you think. I’ll try it later. 😉
