Browser-Based Google Maps for iOS Now Has Street View
Google has ramped up the capabilities of the browser-based version of Google Maps for iOS with new support for Street View. iOS device owners who choose to access Google Maps via the Safari browser on their device will once again be able to see an on-the-ground view of addresses and intersections.

Google Maps is free to use via the web.
