Two major problems, Mark

If you zoom in, it doesn't keep centered on the address you initially entered. And that cool-looking ballon with the address renders illegible part of the area immediately around the target, where you;re most likely to want to see other streets, etc. It does look cool, and the interface is quicker than Lycos or Yahoo, but these bugs (and doubtless some others) need to be fixed before it's ready for prime time.

Sure does show how many lakes Canada's got, and some of the

larger National and Provincial parks, sadly I can't look anything up though or I'd show you our area of Toronto. I'll see if I can find the homestead in Maryland though.
