Google Maps Adds Kinetic Scrolling

Google Maps has a couple of new features; kinetic scrolling and Suggest for Google Maps.

Kinetic scrolling means that when you now pan Google Maps and release your mouse the map continues moving with the momentum of your scrolling. You can check it out in action in the video below,

The other new addition to Google Maps is suggested search. The new suggest tool ensures that you get the most useful suggestions depending on where you're zoomed into on the map. For example, if you search for "Mandela" in San Francisco, you'll see items such as Mandela High School and businesses in nearby Oakland as suggested search results.
