Google added a new mode of navigation to Street View called “smart navigation” that lets you travel to a new place by just double clicking on the place or object you would like to see. As you move your mouse within Street View, you'll notice that the cursor now has lightly-shaded geometry called "pancake" attached - it’ll show an oval when your mouse is following a road and a rectangle when moving across the facades of buildings. Double clicking on the pancake transports you to the best panorama in that direction. And in case you changed you changed your mind about the place you jumped to, you can hit the return arrow shown in the Address Box to get back to the previous location. Now you can wander through Street View imagery and not worry about getting lost!
