Google Earth for Opera?

When you go to the Google Earth page on Opera, you get this message: "Aw snap! Google Earth isn't supported by your browser yet." It would be nice to make Google Earth available for Opera for the convenience. of Opera and Google Earth Users. Working with Google and having Opera support Google Earth would be a great thing to do.

I believe it requires Native Client support, which is only available in Chrome (might not even be available in base Chromium). When/if Google switches the site to use Web Assembly instead, then it should work in Opera.

You can get that view with Google Maps.

"The Chromium-based browsers—including Chrome, the forthcoming version of Edge, and Opera—all offer support for WebAssembly (some with multi-threading, others without). Once the new version of Edge based on Chromium ships, apps in WebAssembly will work as well in Edge as they do in Chrome. Firefox offers good support for WebAssembly, but had to disable support for multi-threading due to a SharedArrayBuffer issue. And while Opera is based on Chromium, the current version of Opera only offers single-threaded support of WebAssembly. Safari has a strong implementation of WebAssembly, but it lacks full support for WebGL2. Our deep-dive technical post offers more details about WebAssembly support across the browsers."
Google Earth just needs a lot of power ... here is the statement why other browsers are not supported yet.
