Note for Opera users:
If you have problems downloading the GoogleEarth file, it could be because the file associations are incorrect. You will need to apply the following changes:

Go to Tools->Preferences->Downloads
Untick Hide file types opened with Opera
Find application/, if it is there then select and click Edit, if not then Add.
Set MIME type to application/
Set File extensions to kml
Select the Open with default application option - this should already be pointing to the googleearth application
Select OK and then OK and that should do the trick!
