The latest released version of Firefox will probably always be the site's recommended browser - 22 November 2008 - Will Pittenger's stuff for Google Earth and maps
My name is Will Pittenger. I have been making KMZ sets for Google Earth for a long time. After I starting making those, I wanted overlays for my sets. I was unsatisfied with the accuracy of the images available at Wikimedia Commons. So I started making my own with Inkscape and uploading them. Then I needed a place for anyone that liked my KMZ sets and/or maps to find others. For a while, a simple blog sufficed. But, once I started getting requests, I knew I needed something better. This site is the result. You are welcome to set up an account. Some activities are for registered users only. Take your time poking around and let me know what you think.

The latest released version of Firefox will probably always be the site's recommended browser
There are two main problems. First, 99% or more of my testing is done with Firefox (currently, I run 3.0.4). I have IE 8 Beta 2, but normally only use it outside a Firefox extension called IE Tab for Microsoft Update. The one time I tried to open the site inside IE 8's own interface, it kept crashing. I know it renders the site poorly inside Firefox/IE Tab. There doesn't appear to be much I can do about that.
WebKit poses a different problem. I don't have any plans to use or download either Safari or Google Chrome. I would test with WebKit if there was a way to use it inside Firefox like I can IE. Ditto for Opera. Sorry.
