Redfin uses google maps now! Rock!

In a release that I had almost nothing to do with, Redfin has transitioned from Microsoft VirtualEarth to Google Maps. The update went live last night.

Our CTO, Mike Young, has a good explanation of the reasons (in short, contracts and speed. It is so fast. Btw, we don't officially support Google Chrome yet, but hoo boy does display the map fast).

According to Sasha Aickin (Search team lead), it was surprisingly easy to get working. Of course Sasha and his team are a bunch of geniuses, so it didn't surprise me.
