How to open Google Earth directly in your AutoCAD window?

A - answer Using the freeware utility GEarth (see Download) you can open a Google Earth web map (at the project location) directly in your AutoCAD window, as another DWG drawing and interactively navigate through it as in a web browser.

Using the same principle (Javascript API), you can open any web page from the Internet or intranet in the AutoCAD drawing environment (or palette).
