Streetview Embed

Streetviewr, a website that collects and displays interesting streetviews from Google Maps, has stolen a march on Google. The site now provides users the chance to embed a streetview in a webpage. Like the recent Google Maps embed facility it does this through the use of iframes.

Here is an example:



Each of the streetviews on Streetviewr comes with its own embed code or if you find your own streetview in Google Maps you can cut and paste the address and Streetviewr automatically provides the embed code.

This is an brilliant idea. I wonder how long until Google think of it themselves?
