    Google's April Fools

    Anyone that has not yet done so, go to google maps and, in the upper right corner, enter quest mode. It made me smile.

    I like that a lot- I hope they keep it- I looked today (the 2nd) and it is still there... I do want to know how to do the "quest" they mentioned... I clicked try it now and it went away and I have nothing on my map that is "new" aside from the graphics

    I code C hash-tag .Net

    Also, make sure you view StreetView in Quest mode. Very adventurous.

    Ah cool that link still works. Also, thanks for mentioning that I can do it in Streetview. I didn't know that they also made streetview cool too.

    Looks like it’s the t=8 query string in the URL that makes the Quest view. You can attach that to any location URL in the address bar to get Quest view.
