Terraserver was a nice site where you could get recent satellite images of pretty much any piece of land on earth for a fairly low price. Sadly, earlier this year it disappeared.

So, does anyone know of an alternative? A browser based service which would give you access to satellite imagery perhaps a few months old, and not cost an arm and a leg?

Google Earth isn't browser-based but you do get some pretty recent imagery in many locations. At work I use Maxar's (formerly DigitalGlobe) SecureWatch. It is, however, not what you'd call "cheap"...but I get same-day imagery in a lot of cases. Otherwise, a lot of the other sites mentioned are either using lower-resolution imagery like SPOT or LANDSAT, or only allow you to see what's available but you still have to order the high-resolution imagery. Outside of Google Earth or SecureWatch, there just don't seem to be many options out there to take over the market void left by Terraserver.
