Why is google street view so slow?

I want to hook up a game controller to google street view and run it off my projector. Problem is street view seems really slow... i mean i want basically a first person shooter effect. Where is the bottleneck? Is my connection too slow, or is lag on google's side?

There is a lot of data being pulled down. It's not a 'streaming' effect. It's a section-by-section loading effect. You'll never be able to simulate running down the street, at least the way it currently runs.

Street View is a heavy ajax site, which have lots of javascript code, so javascript execution time of your browser is very important(assuming your connection is fast enough). try benchmarking your browser with sunspider and choose another browser if necessary
