Permanently remove updater from Google Earth 5
Authored by: wheeles on Apr 24, '09 05:22:29AM

I recently removed Google Earth as it created a lot of clutter for seemingly little benefit. For example, why is there a Google folder under ~/Library when there is a perfectly good Application Support directory in which Google can put their stuff? Heck, even Microsoft manages to get that right. So many apps use the Sparkle framework for updating. Why can't Google? If an app can't be a good citizen, then it has no place on my Mac. If the developers of Google Earth can't follow a few basics, then who knows what other horrors are in there.
