I have been seeing the following thing for a few days now and I dunno at all what it is or whether it isn't new.

Title text is "show my location", clicking it will replace it with a loader icon, but it won't work (probably needs a working google gears and not a broken one like mine).

If it is something new, then I will do my best to gather some more info.

It was announced at Google I/O I think, it works with Firefox 3.5 as far as I'm aware, not sure about Chrom etc. Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard will have a location service available too...

Sry, didn't find it due to the fact that constantly searched for "show my location" (the title text), assuming it would be for sure mentioned in the article.
