[Rant] Google Maps (PC)

Been using latest Google Maps preview for a while now and I got to say although it may be cleaner and perhaps prettier to look at, it is a nightmare to use.

Regardless of what machine I'm using it on it always seems to be slow to start-up, takes forever to load map tiles when zooming and overall just more difficult, frustrating and unintuitive to use compared to older Google maps.

Consequently I have reverted back to the older Google Maps and have submitted feedback.

Some may have had a completely different experience and that's cool. Just wanted to vent my experience so far - any others?

Side note - updated Android versions of Google Maps and Navigation are fantastic!
