    Google Maps

    Google Maps is great. You can type in an address, get the direction from/to another, and be able to get a good idea how far/close it is between two places.

    Some websites (like Gumtree), have Google Maps 'embedded' into their pages. Those miniature maps can be handy if you roughly know the area, but a bit hard to read otherwise (have to zoom out and drag the page around). Worse yet, there seems to be no way of finding the direction to/from another.

    It's not terrible, but it would makes things that little bit more convenient if there is a way to open the maps embedded in the page in a new tab/window. Is there any FF plug-in that might do that? Cheers.
