Google Maps adding 3D-like buildings

googlemap3d.b.jpg Google Operating System: 3D Buildings in Google's Street Maps

Google Maps now has isometric projections for buildings in select cities, possibly drawing on 3D building data they have been gathering with their Google Earth product. It's not as cool as Microsoft's Virtual Earth 3D, but at least it works in any 'ole browser.

Checkout Boston or read the Google OS blog entry for more.

Google earth changed their "earth" and I lost the 3D effect. What does my computer need to gain this reality effect again?
