Google Earth from a Tool to a Toy

Last week Google release a new version of Google Earth. Google made a complete rewrite from a classical client to a web client.

Really new and nice are only the interactive guided tours.

This new client has a lot of drawbacks:
  1. It only runs in Google Chrome
  2. No Google Moon
  3. No Google Mars
  4. No Panoramio
  5. No Wikipedia links
  6. No historical images 
  7. No measurement tools
  8. I can't create new tours.
  9. The KML import is experimental and broken 
  10. No more creation of videos

And I'm not alone, other peole are as disappointed as m:
