Google Maps Officially Rocks

Google Maps has always been awesome. But a feature that they just released today makes it even more awesome. You can now ask for driving directions and then change the route by literally dragging the route on the map.

Here is the original route

and now the
modified route

which is exactly the way I drive that route every couple weeks. This new ability to modify the route is great for giving people directions to things (and you want to correct Google Maps' mistakes) or for mapping out a route between several destinations. Combined with the new Street View (not available in most cities including Canada yet) I think Google Maps will remain the best mapping software for a while.
