Just hours before Google I/O begins and we go all Google crazy for days on end, a new look Google Maps for desktop has been unveiled by Droid-Life. The site noticed a description on the revised Maps landing page that reveals we should expect a "tailored map for every search".

Not only that, but we should expect a new user interface (UI) which features the same kind of look as Google's recent mobile apps, a WebGL-powered overhead views borrowed from Google Earth, Flight Search integration, and the ability to compare multiple modes of transportation on the map itself. We should also expect some Google Now-like interactions such as your map suggesting restaurants you might enjoy on your way to your destinatiojn.
