Mapquest’s new maps

I noticed the other day that Mapquest has improved their map—they now let you move the map with by dragging on the map (instead of having to use the arrows) and they have a aerial image view of the map as well. They don't do the hybrid streets and satellite view like Google yet though. I usually end up using Google Maps a lot because of how I use search (just typing the address in Google and clicking the first link on the search results page), but Mapquest's "Advanced Options" are still nice (avoid highways, shortest distance vs. shortest time, etc.) I just wish they didn't have so many advertisements on the site. It's a bit distracting.
