Google Earth - Upgrade to 5.1 and see significant speed improvement

Remember atlases? Remember when you couldn't zoom in to see your (or someone else's) house? Ah, what fools we were. Google Earth has made some big gains is speed and other aspects of its uniquely game-changing application. From the blog:

"What does all of this mean to you? A faster, smoother experience when you're flying around the globe. Download the latest version (Google Earth 5.1), head on over to Paris, and turn on the road layer without fear of slowing things down. Or turn on one of the Rumsey Map layers from our gallery and see the world as it was drawn by Cassini in 1790 without missing a beat."
