Firefox 3.5 added support for “My Location”; Google Maps added a feature “Show My Location.”
One random day I thought I’d try it out and see how well it does. I’m only using a laptop with no real GPS technology built in. I have a phone, but it doesn’t support anything fancy. It’s just a phone.
When I first clicked the “Show My Location” circle on Google maps, Firefox was kind enough to ask me if it was OK for Google to know this. I said yes, because I wanted to know. To my surprise, awe, and WTF? It had my location closer than I could have ever imagined.
