I frequently use the Earth View (the one like in external Google Earth program) on maps.google.com as i find it more pleasant and quick rather then the laggy map and satellite views.

However, every time one visit maps.google.com, one have to manually switch to Earth View. So i wonder if it’s possible to make the EV default when visiting maps.google.com?

Thank you.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Are you logged in to your Google/Gmail account? – iglvzx Nov 25 '11 at 17:55
Aye, i am. And i tried setting a default location, which works. However, the default view is still the painted map. – Россарх Nov 25 '11 at 18:00
Hmm. I just installed the Google Earth plugin to test this out. I am experiencing the same thing as you. – iglvzx Nov 25 '11 at 19:16
Google Maps remembers if were using the Satellite or Map view, but not the Earth view. – iglvzx Nov 25 '11 at 19:21
