New Google Maps Are Silky Smooth

- - posted in Maps

I just tried the new Google Maps. Two words, “silky smooth”.

My likes:

  • Silky smooth panning/zooming
  • Significantly faster load times
  • Street level photos
  • Mapping of photos to locations
  • Modern control icons (the older ones feel dated)
  • Good use of transparency and color palette
  • Improved street and business data

I am not going back.
