Map this, buddy.

Google Maps is live and running.

Google has officially revealed their latest initiative, Google Maps. The beta site is available here , and the interface is (IMHO, of course) noticeably better than either MapBlast or MapQuest. The clickable waypoints and the keyboard interface for live map updating make it a joy to use. It is optimized for Mozilla (all platforms) but - despite the warnings to the contrary - you can use Safari or Opera just fine. And you probably don't end up with directional disasters like this .
