Editors' Review

In spite of a few stability issues, we mostly like this informative utility for monitoring global conditions. When you launch EarthBrowser, you'll see a nicely designed globe rotating against a starry sky. A small control panel in the application's upper-left corner lets you decide what sort of data the globe will display. For instance you can view weather conditions, wildfires, earthquakes, icebergs, buoys, storms, volcanoes, and cloud cover. You also can determine, for example, whether the map shows city lights and names of countries and oceans. Clicking on the appropriate globe icons takes you to more in-depth informational Web sites or local Webcams. Zoom tools allow you to get a closer look at a specific location.

As you might expect, this program does consume a lot of memory when running in the background, so it best suits folks with powerful computers. Also, when we tried to access a few of the demo's forbidden features, the program froze up on us. It was only when we tried to shut it down by its taskbar icon that we were able to unstick it and continue. Nevertheless, we can suggest EarthBrowser to anyone interested in keeping an eye on what's happening on the planet.

    "Pretty speedy reminds me of Advant....."

    January 16, 2010   |   By ThresaJones16

    Version: EarthBrowser 3.2.1

    Pros

    The speed is great and I like the way it opens every link in a new tab.....Reminds me a lot of Advant and others available.....I haen't used it enough to really give a professional opinion as of yet.....

    Cons

    Not many skins available and I haven't really used it enough to complain yet LOL.

    Summary

    I haven't really used it enough to form a professional opinion but it reminds me of Advant..... I will do a follow up at a later date for sure.....I do welcome new browsers but my favorites are MOZILLA and my old stand by AOL.....I do wish they would come up with a really colorful cheerful browser with 3D animation that could be disabled for users that will complain that it is slow due to 3D animations running.....There are always THOSE PEOPLE who complain about everything whatever it may be.....Thresa Jones in Indiana
