    You are a bit behind the times.

    The link you gave is actually the Google Maps equivalent for mars and has been available for some time.

    However last month Google released version 5 of Google Earth which also now comes with Mars in 3d and all! Also try out Google sky if you haven't yet.

    Also version 5 greatly enhanced the oceans in Google earth.

    Also in Google Earth (Google Mars), they have just added a new layer which shows the most current imagery from two Mars orbiters: THEMIS and HiRES. They process the imagery and have it in Google earth in as little as a few hours.
