Google Maps
Google labs has added yet another new search tool this week - Google Maps. Love the interface, its everything peopl have come to expect from google, but the accuracy isn't there yet. Based on my searches its good to about one to three blocks, if the address is even in the database. A few key word searchs also brought up some weird results, but I like how the results are tagged on the map.

Parts of it reminds me of Map24.com which is also java based. IIRC its more accurate, and has some more tools, but it's not as clean as google's system.

In anycase Mapquest and the MSN system are dead if they don't get into gear PDQ. Then again Microsoft's systems are already mucked up (see also: "Where do you want to go today?")
