Everyone Can Get the New Google Maps Right Now

First shown off at I/O, Google has just rolled out its updated Maps for the web to basically everyone. All you need to do now is sign up here and you'll instantly have access to everything that's new and grand.


The cleaner redesign focuses in on the maps themselves giving users even more context depending on what it is you're actually looking for. Mass transit directions, for instance, offers "more times and options," so you can see all your route options for any given time. Check it out! [Google]



I've been using the new Google Maps since they first allowed people to try it, and while it's by far the best map application available (by leaps and bounds), it's quite slow in comparison to the old version.
