virtual globe in the browser

Latest stable version of Chrome 9 now has built-in support for WebGL. Hopefully this would increase the amount of people trying out various cool 3-D stuff, from the infamous Aquarium demo to the fancy Jelly Fish animation, and many others.

What excites me is the following: WebGL Earth, a free and open-source implementation of a virtual globe using WebGL. The live demo supports showing the map tiles from OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, and Bing. Just awesome!
