    Although only a beta, it's now availble on the Google site.

    Here for the download.

    It's been out for weeks.

    I like the new controls, but there are still a bugs and few un-supported features.

    Hi guys, for some reason, when opening Google earth, it gets thrown on an area on the far right upper corner of my screen, and I'm unable to move it to the center because I can't touch the bar. I'm able to have a look at it with the F9 or F10 functions of Dashboard/Expose, but this won't help me being able to move the window and use Google Earth. Any ideas out there what could be going wrong? Thanks.

    Try quitting Google Earth and then trashing the preferences file - on my system this is called com.Google.GoogleEarthPlus.plist. These normally contain information on the last window location.

    It magically readjusted itself into the middle of the screen after the computer was asleep. No idea what was going on. I never moved the window to where it was. It went into that corner the first time I used Google Earth. Thanks for your advice anyway!
