The new web version of Google Earth is usable on Chromebooks. This is, of course, a plus. I noticed that some of the images have been updated and the detail in both 2D and 3D are stunning. Some other locations seem to still be using older images that are not as detailed. The web version is great for searching and browsing but it is not so user-friendly for adding placemarks. Richard Byrne has created a video that demonstrates a workaround should you want to add placemarks. I assume that Google will continue to add features to the web version. For the moment, it’s nice to have the option of using Google Earth on the Chromebooks. Check out famous locations. The ones I looked at are impressive.
