Google Maps Testing New UI
Google have been testing a new user interface for Google Maps for a couple of months now. The new design has been tested with a number of users, including Justin from 41Latitude, who has managed to create this video of the new design.
The biggest change is in the appearance of the map buttons. The buttons have been changed to larger thumbnail images. In the new design when you roll over the satellite thumbnail the layer options appear in a drop-down list.
The list of your recent map searches is also displayed in the layer panel. Another change is that the small map panel, which in the old design is shown in a small window in the bottom corner, now appears in the new thumbail button.
Hat-tip: Street View Funny & Google Operating System
