It used to work for me, but it looks like it might be broken. I use the online version, zoom in to a fairly low level, and if there is a street view the little unisex-person icon will change from white to yellow. You can drag that to a place on the map, and if there is a street view for that place, it should appear in a bubble next to the icon you are dragging. After that, it goes dark for me. It used to work.

Edit: I should have mentioned this was with Linux on a 64-bit machine. I tried in Vista (which came with the computer... damn M$ tax) and it worked ok with the on-line version. Google earth does not have a 64-bit version for windows either. Works fine for me with older versions/32-bit OS's.

Works for me the way described above, however I don't think it's as good as it's made out to be, all a bit jerky for my liking. I'll stick with google earth I think
