A reader reported of spotting a new UI for the Google Maps views and layers. The new interface enlarges the buttons that let you switch to satellite view and to the embedded Google Earth, removes the button that lets you switch to traditional view and adds a layer panel that's only displayed when you mouse over the satellite button.

Another change, the list of recent searches and Google Maps views is now displayed in the layer panel, so you can quickly switch between custom maps, driving directions, local search results and Google Maps layers. Google Maps also shows the weather for the current location.

[Thanks, Alex, Dave]
