so much faster than google maps somehow .. mayb because it only provides scale-zooming...

It seems like it does not use the API, since it gives the reverse-engineered map location parameters at the bottom.

Don't forget you can actually crash your plane into the scenery and if you press space, you can fire some bullets. :)

So steer your plane down and shoot the cabbies or the buildings. Adds up to the fun! :)

Allright. Totally missed it that Philipp added that already. Talk about a useless comment :) DUH.

Very VERY cool!

Anyone get this to work in Firefox? Works like a charm in IE...

It works for me in FireFox. Version 1.5.0.4 on WinXP Pro

Did a complete from-scratch install of the latest Firefox Portable with my preferred extensions, and it works now. Cool!
