4.6 Speed up the "1.1 Map of all Places".
I've got the upgraded maps to the point where you can try them out. So for "Map of all Places", here's the old version:
And here's the new one:
Improvements in the new map:
- Much faster to load
- pop-up windows look better
- better clustering
- easier to use and smaller download for mobile devices
If you try the new map please could you leave a comment below with:
- the browser you used
- whether it is faster than the old version
- any problems / things not working properly
- any other feedback
eg I've just tried using the Chrome browser on a Windows 7 PC. The new map is around 8x faster to load than the old map (3 seconds vs 24 seconds). No problems with zooming in or out, switching to and from full-screen, or changing layers.
