Sounds like the maps available at wunderground.com.  It auto refreshes
every five minutes.

However, you mentioned city streets -- yeah, no.

I also think the transparency bit isn't available (not sure if you're
actually talking about browser window, in this case)

And, probably the feature of death: needs javascript, if I am
mistaken.  Anything browser based and have the pan/zoom/autoupdate is
likely to need that.  Sorry.
