I posted this last night on Eschwa:

Google Maps has switched around their map UI.  Now the address links and stuff
are on the left-hand side of the page, and the map itself is on the right.

I can't even begin to describe how thrown off my entire sense of well-being is
by this switch, being a constant user of Google Maps and all.

I posted in the "Pathetique" forum because, yes, I did feel pathetic in my indignation and feelings of unease due to this horrid switch. Thankfully I am not alone; since posting I have received 3 or 4 responses from Google Maps friends voicing their agreement in varying shades of conviction from "Yeah, I don't like it either" to "It's a fucking abomination, is what it is!"

And you know? The more I think about it, the angrier I get. That left-hand scale slider? NEEDS TO BE ON THE LEFT, DAMMIT! ALLLLLLL THE WAY LEFT! Trying to hit those "Hybrid" buttons or grabbing that scale slider is like flailing at a falling umbrella as I plunge down a cliff, Wile E. Coyote style.

So the consensus seems to be that Google Maps now bites it, whatever "it" is.
