Google Maps upgrade



I’ve seen a couple places referring to some improvements in the way google maps handles zooming and so I decided to take a look in Firefox. The zoom handling of Google maps is the one thing that I’ve wished for an improvement in for some time. After noticing MSN’s virtual earth had the capability of scroll wheel zooming, I really wanted it in Google Maps.


According to the writeups the big change is double-left click zooming in and double-right click zooming out… which is nice, but I did test and the scroll wheel now brings your zoomin in/out as well. Yay….

There’s also a slightly different interface around the search box… tabs underneath for “search the map” “find businesses” and “get directions”.
