Great for house hunters like me.
Maybe in time people could be removed.
I really like the new street view on Google. I'm a pedestrian and only recently moved areas so I find it brilliant when arranging to meet people. I can check what the resturant or bar looks like and what surrounding areas look like so I don't spend ages wandering about looking like an idiot.
Plus I'm house hunting so to see what the area actually looks like is great. I can really see what a possible walk to work would be like.
I can understand people being a little worried about privacy but to be honest if I wanted I could walk ouside most homes or offices and see what they look like in person. As long as secure areas are protected them I think this is one of Google's best advances yet.
