I’m going to mourn when I must use the new Google Maps, when they finally disallow using the old interface.
I’ll probably still use the new version, though I’ll try to use Bing Maps and others when I don’t need Streetview data.
The new GM interface is just so terrible and user-hostile. Of course, it’s not for me – it’s to make life easier for advertisers and therefore more profitable for Google.
Google is now so dominant they can do whatever they want, so they will.
