Google Maps Improved

Today’s changes are intended to keep the same information-rich map while making it easier to pick out the information that is most useful. The changes affect both the ‘Map’ and ‘Hybrid’ styles, and include numerous refinements to color, density, typography, and road styling worldwide. For example, in map view, local and arterial roads have been narrowed at medium zooms to improve legibility, and the overall colours have been optimized to be easier on the eye and conflict less with other things (such as traffic, transit lines and search results) that we overlay onto the map. Hybrid roads have gained a crisp outline to make them easier to follow, and the overall look is now closer to an augmented satellite view instead of a simple overlay.

Google Maps (が今日変更されて大分見やすくなった見たいですね。
例えば僕はずっとWindowsユーザーだったのですが、3年ほど前からWebの職に就き PC → Mac に移行しました。Mac は Windows と比べて UI がどれもかっこよく洗練されています。
一番よく使うインターネットで感じるのが文字の*1アンチエイリアス処理 + フォントの美しさでしょうか。Mac を使うと MSゴシックなど見たくもなくなります。
