Chrome users at last get their Google Earth plugin. The news was brought forward via Google Earth mailing list. This is going to be pretty great update for Chrome users as they will no more have to switch browsers to view the same in another. A Google employee stated:
As of 4 p.m. PST today, Google Chrome 1.0+ on Windows is an officially supported browser. That means Chrome users will no longer get the unsupported browser message, and the plugin and API should work just as they would in other supported browsers.
