Google Street View Screen Saver

Another Google Maps API based screen saver for WebSaver. Based on the recently released Street View API, this walks around a few US cities (NY, LA, SF and Boston to be exact). The movement is random, but a history is kept to avoid too much repeating.

Google Street View Screen Saver

The Street View API is still pretty new, and it does seem to leak memory (under Safari 3), so this may slow down your system.

Now, this will be more fun when they get some cities I  know on it.
