Can anyone tell me what on earth have they done to Street View in Google Maps? I've just loaded it and it seems a shambles, totally different, screen all over the place, the search bar permanently on screen....why oh why...what was wrong with it before? Why is this planet overrun with meddlers?
I'm obviously in a minority as I'm quite happy with the new version. There are 2 ways to access street view via the peg man (bottom right) and via the explore bar with pictures, etc. I have had a few glitches using Chrome with it though. IE 11 and Firefox have no problems.
Cheers Woolwell, followed the instructions to opt out permanently and clicked "Yes" to opt out, but that wasn't followed by a landing page as it states. Seems like I'm back to the old, far superior Classic View on Firefox, but on IE it won't remain and I have to reset it each time I use it. Why are there so many jackasses on this planet, sitting on their backsides in their offices, constantly meddling, changing and generally confusing and worsening things that were previously working smoothly and properly? It's not only these twerps, but places like supermarkets, constantly changing their displays..."Where's the sugar that used to be here?"...."Oh, we've moved it sir, it's now on the other side of the store, next to frozen fish-don't get too used to it though because my colleague and fellow meddling moron, will be moving it again tomorrow". Give me frigging strength! Ps, I'm still not getting email notifications, even though I've ticked the reply box...have they changed that too???
