Google, Yahoo Maps Refreshed

Both Google Maps and Yahoo Maps got refreshed last week: Google’s interface was rejigged to reduce clutter (oddly, I get the old interface when I load, but the new interface when I load — localization bug?); Yahoo’s interface changes are less obvious but more substantive, and focus on printable maps, driving directions, and local search.

On a minor note, Google’s driving directions now include the option to avoid toll roads.
