Google has been testing its major redesign of Google Maps' web interface for the better part of a year, and it's at last ready to bring the new look to everyone. The search giant has started rolling out the updated layout to all desktop users; only some will see it today, but it should reach all visitors in the weeks ahead. As a refresh, the new Maps gets rid of the old sidebar in favor of putting search results directly on the map. It also brings real-time traffic data and a Street View carousel to help virtual tourists.
