Google Maps looks great.
I specifically say looks great because I haven’t had a chance to check it out in detail. It didn’t work for me in Firefox. I got a more or less empty page on the opening page and on any search. I had viewed it in IE to check out Jon Udell’s walking tour of Keene, New Hampshire and thought it was pretty cool, but since I don’t normally use IE I hadn’t experimented with it much.
Fortunately for my sanity Google Maps still didn’t work, but I noticed that there was a link to report problems. The report form asked for my browser (Note to Google: prepopulating the browser type is a nice touch.) and browser plugins, so I decide to disable all my Firefox extensions. That took a while, but didn’t make any difference.
Now I can really look into Google Maps.
This reinforces my desire to get all of my configuation options under version control. I guess the other option is that I could just leave the defaults, but what fun is that. One of the principal pleasures of software is having it my way.
