Google Maps

Zounds! Google Maps is awfully cool. You drag the map around and can zoom with a tool bar that acts as if you can pick any point on the scale to zoom in on. The map designs are way better than MapQuest/Yahoo/etc. When you get directions the map is similarly zoomable. It worked better for me in Firefox than Netscape and it was a bit slow/jerky but still impressive.

oooh, this is neat. I mapped the directions from my house in Baltimore to the one we want to buy in Omaha. 1163 miles or over 17 hours, the directions were right and I liked how the map moved after typing in the addresses.
