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.

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.



  1. Awesome post! I have this set as my screensaver and its AWESOME!

  3. Hey Gavin, I’ve noticed in the recent few months that the maps screensaver no longer moves. Do you have any idea how to fix it? Many in the office here are big fans of it and still use it.

    thanks much
