In early February Web search engine company Google Inc. took the wraps of
Google Maps, a still-in-beta service created as an alternative to MapQuest.com and other mapping services. When Google Maps first debuted in February, Mac users had to use Firefox or another browser to get the service to work, since Google Maps didn’t support Safari. Now it does.
In a posting to
Google Blog, Google Maps product manager Bret Taylor recently announced that Apple’s Safari Web browser and Opera Software’s browsers are now supported.
