Too bad you're having trouble with Google Maps - you can't use the new Street View feature. Type in an address, click on the Street View box in the upper right of the map, and you can look at a street view of any streets and roads that are highlighted in blue. There is a little orange guy that you can drag to where you want to look, and when you click on him, you'll see the street view. You can also pan the image - if you pan way down, you can even see the vehicle the imaging device was attached to. Those of you who are still able to get Google Maps need to go play with it yourself.


Wow! That's almost scary!!!

More standard compliant, little to no spyware, frequent updates for security and general version upgrades, open source, cross-platform, extensions, no ActiveX, etc, etc.

And it's painless.

I installed and configured it and was using the Google Map feature in Geocaching.com, plus the caching features in Google Maps in less than 5 minutes. Firefox effortlessly imported all my IE bookmarks, without affecting IE.
