It looks like Google is set to unveil a new version of Google Maps for the desktop at I/O this week. Droid-Life discovered a description on the revised service’s landing page that reveals what’s in store: a “tailored map for every search,” a new UI reminiscent of Google’s recent mobile apps, WebGL-powered overhead views borrowed from Google Earth, Flight Search integration, and the ability to compare multiple modes of transportation on the map itself. Google also hints at Google-Now-like interactions such as your map suggesting restaurants you might enjoy on the way to your destination. While the site has since been pulled, it looks like Google will have a lot to show off during its Maps session at this week’s developer conference.
