Yahoo! Maps Out of Beta; Europe Update

Our recent discussions of Yahoo! Maps’s features have focused, it must be said, on their new, beta version rather than their older, default version: you have had to choose the new version deliberately. Until today: Yahoo! announces that the beta is now default for broadband users; the older version remains for dialup. (Truth be told, modern online maps are very bandwidth intensive, as I discovered when I tried to use Google Maps on dialup.)

Also from the Yahoo! Maps and Local Blog, an announcement of their European coverage upgrades, detailing which countries got comprehensive (vs. just “major”) coverage, and which just have coverage of their capital cities.
