Google Maps – extremely well done

By Herb

Google comes out with the most professional, most useful, and fastest web-based map atlas yet.

I did my normal, self-involved first search string on it and it returned all of my old addresses in .0013 seconds, gave me directions to the tiny independent bookstore I go to, and even confirmed my heretofore superstitious belief that every street in Cambridge’s Harvard Square is either one-way or a dead end!

Sadly, it doesn’t support anything but the two mainstream browsers yet. Opera users such as myself are forgotten again.
