MSN Virtual Earth street level views

Sean Rowe at MSN posts that MSN Virtual Earth is demoing what they call "street-side drive-by", a nifty UI on top of street-level photos from the front and side of some locations in some major cities.

Though limited in scope, buggy, and IE only, this new feature looks like it could be a major one-up on the BlockView images in A9 Maps. When it works, it's a super-slick, jaw-dropping experience, very fun.

I don't think it's IE-only...It worked for me in Firefox on Linux. Of course, maybe I was missing out on some IE-only functionality, but the basic gist of it worked.
